Modulating the expression of chirality in a mechanically chiral rotaxane
MetadataShow full item record
The expression of mechanical chirality by a hydrogen bond templated rotaxane, as detected by 1H NMR spectroscopy, may be modulated by affecting the co-conformational behaviour of the rotaxane through varying solvent or by addition of acid and base.
