Over the past decade the field of the synthesis of axially chiral compounds has been rapidly expanding. Not only key advances have been achieved concerning the already established strategies but also new synthetic routes have been devised. This review showcases the recent developments in this domain.
Porphyrin core alteration allows for the exploration of porphyrin-like or porphyrin-unlike coordination chemistry and provides an insight into reactions inside particularly shaped macrocyclic architecture including metal-mediated structural transformations.
This review describes recent results in the investigation of macrocyclic amphiphiles, which are classified based on different macrocyclic frameworks including cyclodextrins, calixarenes, cucurbiturils, pillararenes, and other macrocycles involved.
This review focuses on the bottom-up fabrication of linear and branched bis(terpyridine)metal complex wires on electrode surfaces, which feature distinct and characteristic electronic functionalities such as intra-wire redox conduction and excellent long-range electron transport ability.
