" Small, Functional Rotaxanes "

                                     Monday February 6th  Auditorium Astier 11h


Our group have pioneered the use of ?small? macrocycles in active template reactions in order to allow the synthesis of small(er), functionalised rotaxanes in excellent yield. I will describe some of our recent applications of this methodology to the synthesis of complex homo- and hetero-circuit [n]rotaxanes, as well as functional interlocked molecules including sensors and catalysts, and discuss our pioneering work on mechanically chiral rotaxanes, a previously hard to access class of chiral molecules.
