Resolution of a configurationally stable [5]helquat: enantiocomposition analysis of a helicene congener by capillary electrophoresis

Abstract

Racemic [5]helquat as a triflate salt has been synthesized using a robust, three-step procedure. Subsequent exchange of triflate anions for inexpensive (R,R)-dibenzoyltartrate anions via an ion exchange resin afforded two diastereoisomeric salts. Crystallization led to the resolution of the helquat (ee > 98%). This is the first time that a non-racemic helquat has been obtained; its helicity having been assigned and its racemization barrier determined. Capillary electrophoresis with a sulfated β-cyclodextrin chiral selector is introduced for the first time as a straightforward method to analyze the enantiocomposition of charged, helicene-like species.
