Conformational changes and chiroptical switching of enantiopure bis-helicenic terpyridine upon Zn2+binding.

Isla, Helena and Srebro-Hooper, Monika and Jean, Marion and Vanthuyne, Nicolas and Roisnel, Thierry and Lunkley, Jamie L. and Muller, Gilles and Williams, J. A. Gareth and Autschbach, Jochen and Crassous, Jeanne (2016) 'Conformational changes and chiroptical switching of enantiopure bis-helicenic terpyridine upon Zn2+binding.', Chemical communications., 52 (35). pp. 5932-5935.


The molecular conformation of a bis-helicenic terpyridine system is strongly modified upon binding to Zn(II) ion, a process that is accompanied by large changes in the optical and chiroptical properties. This system affords a new type of helicene-based chiroptical switching.
