The intriguing nature of this highly interesting compound class has inspired much research over the last decade, and much of what has been produced is highly interdisciplinary, with applications found in catalysis, material science, and spectroscopy. Indeed, the field has reached maturity such that elegant synthetic methods are now available and novel applications in areas such as enantioselective catalysis and optoelectronics are appearing.
This monography, coedited by Jeanne Crassous, Irena G. Stara & Ivo Stary, on Helicenes provides not only an introduction to the synthesis of this fascinating class of chiral compounds but also describes their properties and their applications. The book thoroughly explains several synthetic routes from classical to state-of-the-art methods. In addition, the different classes of helicene-based molecules – organic, organometallic, oligo-meric, an...
