Crystal engineering with 1,4-piperazine-2,5-diones

Author affiliations


Experimental testing of a paradigm for the design and construction of functional crystalline solids based on an indane/piperazinedione/indane scaffold is summarized. In theory, molecular assembly is predetermined by incorporation of chemically and geometrically orthogonal intermolecular interactions. Application of the paradigm to the development of materials possessing liquid crystalline and nonlinear optical properties is presented.
