Enantiomerically Pure Higher Helicenes; Synthesis and Characterization


Helicenes are comprised of all-ortho connected benzene rings, which furnish a helical structure with densely overlapping p-systems. This class of polyaromatics are interesting not only for theoretical studies on their physical-chemical and supramolecular properties, but also for the development of novel materials and sensors. Since lower helicenes feature special properties to an unexpected extent, higher helicenes may exhibit properties, which have not been observed in other structures. However, there is no synthesis currently available for higher helicenes; thus, synthesis of higher helicenes is currently underway.
