Concave binding of cationic Li to quadrannulene

Author affiliations

Abstract

Binding of Li+ to quadrannulene and its influence on buckybowl functionalization are introduced. The concave-trapped Li+ acts as a Lewis acid and the rate of Diels–Alder cycloaddition is enhanced 108 times. A sandwiched bowl-Li+-bowl structure is stabilized via concave–cation–convex interactions, indicating the promoted role of Li+ in buckybowl assembly.
