p-Bis(arylcarbonyl)pentiptycenes 2 (aryl = 4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl) and 3 (aryl = mesityl) have been prepared and investigated as redox-gated molecular rotors. For 2, rotations about the pentiptycene-carbonyl bond (the α rotation) and about the aryl-carbonyl bond (the β rotation) are independent, and the rotation barriers are 11.3 and 9.5 kcal mol-1,(More)
This paper provides the first example of experimentally characterized hydrogen-bond cooperativity on fluorescence quenching with a modified green fluorescence protein (GFP) chromophore that contains a 6-membered C═N···H-O and a 7-membered C═O···H-O intramolecular H-bonds. Variable-temperature (1)H NMR and electronic absorption and emission spectroscopies(More)
DFT calculations predict that the chiral pentiptycene derivative E-1 possesses distinct rotational potential energy surfaces in the neutral vs the radical anionic (E-1(•-)) form such that continued electrochemical switching between E-1 and E-1(•-) could lead to a directional rotation of the pentiptycene rotor about the exocyclic C-C bond. The time scale of(More)
The design, synthesis, conformational analysis, and variable-temperature NMR studies of pentiptycene-based molecular gears Pp(2)X, where Pp is the unlabeled (in 1H) or methoxy groups-labeled (in 1OM) pentiptycene rotor and X is the phenylene stator containing ortho-bridged ethynylene axles, are reported. The approach of using shape-persistent rotors of four(More)
