3D Acetylenic Architectures Using Laterally-Functionalized Chiral 1,3-Diethynylallenes

Current studies within this domain focus on the design and synthesis of new chiral, enantiopure 1,3-diethynylallenes bearing lateral chains to effectively stabilize supramolecular architectures with the potential to reach unprecedented values of circular dichroism.
