Synthesis of an Orthogonal Topological Analogue of Helicene.

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


The synthesis of an orthogonal topological pentamer analogue of helicene is presented. This analogue forms a tubular structure with its aromatic systems directed parallel to the axis of propagation, which creates a cavity with the potential to function as a host molecule. The synthetic strategy reported, based on a series of repeating Friedländer condensations that utilize pyrido[3,2-d]pyrimidine moieties as protected amino aldehydes, allows for the facile access of higher generations of helical, tubular structures. As a result of the synthetic strategy, only a helical isomer of the pentamer is possible. The structure and absolute configuration of the pentamer were elucidated from a combination of NMR spectroscopic data, optical properties, X-ray structures, and by comparison of an experimental electronic circular dichroism spectrum to a calculated spectrum.
