Synthetic supramolecular zipper complexes have been used to quantify substituent effects on the free energies of aromatic stacking interactions. The conformational properties of the complexes have been characterised using NMR spectroscopy in CDCl(3), and by comparison with the solid state structures of model compounds. The structural similarity of the complexes makes it possible to apply the double mutant cycle method to evaluate the magnitudes of 24 different aromatic stacking interactions… Expand

Additivity of substituent effects in aromatic stacking interactions.
TLDR
The goal of this study was to experimentally test the additivity of the electrostatic substituent effects (SEs) for the aromatic stacking interaction using a small molecule model system that could adopt an offset face-to-face aromatic stacking geometry. Expand
Study of through-space substituent–π interactions using N-phenylimide molecular balances
Substituent–π interactions associated with aromatic stacking interactions were experimentally measured using a small N-phenylimide molecular balance model system. The direct interaction of theExpand
Broad Transferability of Substituent Effects in π-Stacking Interactions Provides New Insights into Their Origin.
TLDR
Overall, substituent effects are similar in two stacked dimers as long as the electric fields above the unsubstituted rings are similar, providing a more sound physical justification for the local, direct interaction model. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that substituent effects in π-stacking interactions can be described in terms of direct, local interactions between the substituents and the nearby vertex of the other arene, and the notion that so-called aromatic interactions depend on the aromaticity of the interacting rings is debunked. Expand

Unraveling the Origin of Substituents Effects in π-Stacking Interactions
Non-covalent interactions involving aromatic rings, which include π-stacking, anion-π, and cation-π interactions, among others, are central to modern chemical research. These interactions play vitalExpand

TLDR
The local, direct interaction model provides a simple means of analyzing substituent effects in complex aromatic systems and also offers simple explanations of the crystal packing of fluorinated benzenes and the recently published dependence of the stability of protein-RNA complexes on the regiochemistry of fluorinate base analogues. Expand
The effects of substituents on the geometry of π-π interactions.
TLDR
The crystallographic data suggests that such "flexing" may be the result of the individual molecules orienting themselves to maximize the local dipole interactions on the respective aromatic rings, and can potentially have broad applicability towards the development of molecular recognition systems that involve aromatic interactions. Expand
Can Dispersion Forces Govern Aromatic Stacking in an Organic Solvent?
TLDR
The size-dependence of aromatic stacking interactions is consistent with the dominance of van der Waals dispersion forces even in the presence of a competing polarizable solvent. Expand
