Our studies of helicenes are summarized in regard to chiral recognition phenomenon in noncovalent bonding interactions. The interactions between helical molecules show a tendency for pairs of the same configuration of the helicenes to form more stable complexes than pairs of enantiomeric helicenes. The observations are made in charge transfer complexation, crystallization, homocoupling reaction, layer structure formation, self-aggregation, and double helix formation. The interactions between a… CONTINUE READING
