Remote conformational control of a molecular switch via methylation and deprotonation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Exacting control over conformation in response to an external stimulus is the central focus of molecular switching. Here we describe the synthesis of a series of diphenylacetylene-based molecular switches, and examine their response to covalent modification and deprotonation at remote phenolic positions. A complex interplay between multiple intramolecular hydrogen bond donors and acceptors determines the global conformation.
