Reversible mechanical protection: building a 3D "suit" around a T-shaped benzimidazole axle

Reversible mechanical protection: building a 3D "suit" around a T-shaped benzimidazole axle
Giorgio Baggi, Stephen J. Loeb, Kelong Zhu, V. Nicholas Vukotic
A benzimidazole molecule can be protected from deprotonation with strong base by converting into a suit[1]ane - a type of 3D mechanically interlocked molecule. Utilising a combination of ring-closing and ring-opening metathesis, the wearing of the protective "suit" can be made reversible.
