rings. And a name. Evelyne.
The thesis is grouped around that concept chronologically, starting with the initial conceptual publication in Angewandte Chemie and the detailed synthetic aspects in the European Journal of Organic Chemistry. Besides the resolution of the synthetic maze, the structure as obtained by X-Ray diffraction analysis as well as the dynamic behavior is described therein. The ensuing publication from Chemistry – A European Journal expands on the concept, finding ways to fine-tune the shape of the helical structures by targeted changes in the structure. In a way, describing Evelyn’s daughters.
Schwefelyn. And Selenyn. The supplementary information provided in the manuscripts have been added for the reader’s convenience at the very end, also chronologically ordered.
Preceding these three manuscripts, the reader will find a review entitled “Strain Induced Helical Chirality in Polyaromatic Systems” which has been published in Chemical Society Reviews. This tutorial article explains the rise of helical shapes due to steric interactions with carefully selected examples. It gives a clear systematic overview over the different concepts used to induce helical chirality in small organic molecules – including the one realized in this thesis. It connects the thesis’ topic with the wider world of polyaromatic systems that become chiral due to steric interactions. The last publication included arises from a wonderful collaboration with the group of Prof. Dr. Willem Klopper at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. The excellent theoretical work by Angela Bihlmeier and experimental work by Jürgen Rotzler on the atropisomerizaion of alkyl bridged biphenyls was complemented by kinetic circular dichroism studies.
