Synthesis and Dynamic Structures of a Hybrid Nanohoop Molecule Composed of Anthanthrenylene and Phenylene Panels
2 JST ERATO Isobe Degenerate π-Integration Project, Tohoku University
A hybrid nanohoop molecule composed of anthanthrenylene and phenylene panels was synthesized. Structural analysis by NMR spectroscopy revealed the synchronous dynamics of the arylene panels in solution. Theoretical calculations further clarified the molecular structures involved in the dynamics and showed correlated rotations of neighboring arylene panels.
