Synthesis of fumaramide derived [3]rotaxanes as potential precursors for molecular boxes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Three new fumaramide-derived [3]rotaxanes have been synthesized, with the aim of macrocycle linking to form a molecular box. In one case, a nine-component templated [3]rotaxane synthesis was accomplished in 40% yield. Rotaxane reduction resulted in an unexpectedly facile de-slipping process.
