Abstract

A class of chiral biaryl molecules that have been designed to undergo unidirectional rotation about the aryl-aryl bond may show promise for future application in the area of synthetic molecular motors. These asymmetric molecules should be capable of channeling chemical energy into repeated 360° rotation in one direction. Herein we report the synthesis and characterization of one such biaryl molecule (1).
