Stereospecific Winding of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons into Trinacria Propellers

Stereospecific Winding of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons into Trinacria Propellers
Johan Wouters, Dario Mosca, Antoine Stopin, Davide Bonifazi, Nicola Demitri
Invited for the cover of this issue is the group of Bonifazi at the University of Cardiff and their collaborators from University of Namur (Belgium) and Elettra, Synchrotron Trieste (Italy). The image depicts the propeller-like conformation of their newly synthesized molecular system that thanks to the peculiar aromatic embracing folding resembles the shape of the Sicilian Trinacria symbol, as demonstrated by its X-ray single-crystal structure. Read the full text of the article at 10.1002/chem.201702032. “It was through X-ray crystallography that we could unravel the conformation of this molecule, namely the formation of a propeller-like structure.” Read more about the story behind the cover in the Cover Profile and about the research itself on page ▪▪ ff. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201702032).
