Title: Tripodal cyclohexane derivatives and their use as carbohydrate receptors

Abstract: A tri-podal compound according to formula (I) wherein, each Z is the same and is a substituted or unsubstituted N-heteroaromatic single-, multiple-, or fused-ring; and each A is the same, and can represent a direct bond between the cyclohexane ring and Z, or a carboxamide group (--C(O)--N(H)--). Use of the compounds in combinatorial libraries, methods of making the tripodal compounds, sensor devices for detecting carbohydrate targets, and methods of using the tripodal compounds to detect carbohydrate targets in a sample are also disclosed. ##STR00001##
