Mechanical Conformers of Keyring Catenanes

Harris, Todd C; Sevick, Edith; Williams, David R M


Interlocked molecules exhibit structural isomerization that is different from that of molecules whose connectedness is solely through covalent bonds. A mechanical bond, or the interlocking of components, provides a rich conformational landscape. The ability of synthetic chemists to design directional motion between these mechanical conformers suggests mechanical bonds as building blocks in the design of synthetic molecular motors and machines. Here we examine the complexity of mechanical...[Show more]
