Conformational interconversions in catenanes containing a wide rigid bis(p-benzyl)methyl spacer.
The conformational interconversions of four catenanes (1-4) containing a dibenzo-34-crown-10 ether (BPP34C10) interlocked with rings containing two 4,4'-dipyridiniums tethered by 1,3-bis(ethyloxy)phenyl and bis(p-benzyl)methyl spacers have been studied by VT 1H NMR spectroscopy. Symmetrically pla...
Construction of an interpenetrated structure of macrocycles.
The construction of an interpenetrated structure of macrocycles by a CuAAC "click" reaction was achieved and the binding selectivity of indolocarbazole for a chloride anion was enhanced upon catenanation.
