2,3,6,7-Tetrasubstituted cis-anti-cis perhydroanthracenes have been studied as conformational transducers for molecular signal transduction. 2,2'-Bipyridine groups attached to the perhydroanthracene through ether linkages were chosen as receptor substituents, while pyrene groups were selected as effectors. A chelation-induced triple ring flip of the perhydroanthracene could be achieved by the complexation of zinc(II) ions at the bipyridine sites of ligands 13 and 15. It was found that two… CONTINUE READING
