Light-mediated chiroptical switching of an achiral foldamer host in presence of a carbohydrate guest

Author affiliations

Abstract

A photoresponsive diarylethene was incorporated in an achiral helical foldamer container. A carbohydrate guest was found to induce opposite handedness upon binding to the open and closed forms of the diarylethene-containing foldamer, thus enabling chiroptical switching of an achiral host mediated by a chiral guest.
