Synthesis and Bowl-in-Bowl Assembly of a Geodesic Phenylene Bowl

Synthesis and Bowl-in-Bowl Assembly of a Geodesic Phenylene Bowl
Hiroyuki Isobe, Koki Ikemoto, Sota Sato, Ryo Kobayashi
A carbon-rich geodesic dome has been synthesized by linking 20 trigonal planar 1,3,5-linked phenylenes through 25 biaryl linkages. H. Isobe et al. describe in their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201702063) how the geodesic, corannulenoidal combination of one pentagon and five hexagons leads to the nanometer-sized bowl. Concave–convex molecular recognition results in the formation of a bowl-in-bowl dimer in both the crystalline state and in solution.
