Several new nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) based C3-symmetric tripodal amides have been synthesized. The NTA branches are alkyl chains or esters derived from amino acids of different length, namely glycine, β-alanine and γ-aminobutyric acid. The behavior of these compounds to entrap different monoanions has been tested revealing that they are good ligands able to form host-guest complexes with the following affinity order: H2PO4 > CH3CO2 > PhCO2 > Cl, in DMSO.
