Homochiral 1D-helical coordination polymers from achiral cucurbit[5]uril: hydroquinone-induced spontaneous resolution

Author affiliations

Abstract

Compared to a linear 1D coordination polymer of cucurbit[5] uril with Dy3+ ion, a pair of homochiral 1D-helical coordination polymers of cucurbit[5] uril with Dy3+ were obtained by spontaneous resolution upon crystallization in the presence of achiral hydroquinone, suggesting hydroquinone acts as an inducer of chiral helix.
