A novel molecular arrangement of anthracene moieties and the corresponding rare solid-state excimer emission is obtained by utilization of a ternary system. The system consists of ammonium anthracene disulfonate and adducts, and shows the modulation of the solid-state emission mode depending on the adducts. The adducts act as molecular information sources(More)
A tetramesityl derivative of hitherto unknown tetracyclopenta[def,jkl,pqr,vwx]tetraphenylene (TCPTP), which is a potential tetraradicaloid hydrocarbon, was synthesized. Theoretical calculations based on spin-flip time-dependent density functional theory predict that the closed-shell D2h form of TCPTP is more stable than the open-shell D4h form with its(More)
Steroidal bile acids and their derivatives exhibit characteristic inclusion behaviors in the crystalline state. Their crystals present varied assemblies due to asymmetric molecular structures, which relate to supramolecular properties through cooperative weak interactions. An overview indicates that the steroidal assemblies lie in an intermediate position(More)
We have systematically investigated structures and properties of inclusion crystals of bile acids and their derivatives. These steroidal compounds form diverse host frameworks having zero-, one- and two-dimensional cavities, causing various inclusion behaviors towards many organic compounds. The diverse host frameworks exhibit the following guest-dependent(More)
Chiral molecules preferentially form one-handed supramolecular assemblies that reflect the absolute configuration of the molecules. Under specific conditions, however, the opposite-handed supramolecular assemblies are also obtained because of flexibility in the bond length and reversibility of non-covalent interactions. The mechanism of the handedness(More)
Steroidal bile acids and over 50 of their derivatives serve as the hosts of inclusion crystals. These hosts each exhibit their own characteristic inclusion behaviors, which have been explored through more than 300 crystallographic data. The molecules with three-axial chirality combine in asymmetric fashion to form diverse assemblies, which have(More)
A twofold helix (2(1) helix) is an essential motif in approximately 70% of organic crystals. Although handedness of 2(1) helix has not been discussed from a mathematical viewpoint, we noticed that the handedness can be defined by considering the molecular shape and manner of assembly. Herein we propose the supramolecular-tilt-chirality (STC) method to(More)
