Rational control of a polyacetylene helix by a pendant rotaxane switch

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polyacetylene bearing a pendant rotaxane moiety with an optically active wheel component was synthesized to realize reversible structural control of its helical structure by position control of the wheel component. Polyacetylene formed a one-handed helical structure only when the optically active wheel component moved close to the main chain.
