Protonation-induced red-coloured circularly polarized luminescence of [5]carbohelicene fused by benzimidazole

Author affiliations

Abstract

Benzimidazole-fused [5]carbohelicene ([5]HeliBI) was newly synthesized to examine the spectroscopic and chiroptical properties. The reversible protonation and deprotonation processes of [5]HeliBI were successfully investigated using 1H NMR, absorption and fluorescence spectral measurements. We also confirmed the circularly polarized luminescence of protonated [5]HeliBI (H+-[5]HeliBI). This is the first observation of red-coloured CPL of a helicene derivative.
