Bowl-shaped phosphine molecules, whose bowl geometry can be controlled by a variation of the axial substituent, were synthesized, and used as host molecules to encapsulate C60. Host molecules with relatively shallow bowls formed a chiral capsule, while hosts with deeper bowls formed an achiral pseudo-cage.
The liquid crystal of a chiral bowl-shaped molecule having a central-phosphorus atom and long alkyl chains was developed. The DSC and XRD analyses suggested the formation of columnar liquid crystals of both the enantiopure and racemic compounds. The condensed phase of the enantiopure compound in a thin film exhibited a significant signal in CD spectra,(More)
