Novel chiral molecular tweezer from (+)-usnic acid.


A new chiral molecular tweezer was synthesized with (1R,2R)-1,2-diaminocyclohexane as spacer and two molecules of (+)-usnic acid as pincers. The ability of this molecular tweezer to bind 2,4,7-trinitrofluorenone was studied. A charge-transfer complex was formed in which TNF was sandwiched between the two usnic acid units with pi-pi-stacked aromatic… (More)
