Both enantiomers of axially chiral bis(dinaphthofuran) were prepared in only two steps from 1'-hydroxy-4'-methoxy-2,2'-binaphthalenyl-1,4-dione, followed by optical resolution via high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using a chiral stationary phase (CSP). The absolute configurations were determined by comparison of experimental and calculated vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectra. Synthetic bis(dinaphthofuran) exhibited a broad and unstructured emission derived from an…

Chiral exciplex dyes showing circularly polarized luminescence: extension of the excimer chirality rule
This systematic study allowed us to confirm that the excimer chirality rule can be applied to the exciplex dyes: left- and right-handed exciplexes with a twist angle of less than 90° exhibit (−)- and (+)-CPL, respectively.

Multibridged chiral naphthalene oligomers with continuous extreme-cisoid conformation.
The absorption and fluorescence regions were red-shifted as the number of naphthalene rings increased, and DFT calculations showed that the LUMO and HOMO of these bridged oligonaphthalenes were spread over a wide range.
