Abstract: Quantum mechanics density functional calculations provided gas-phase electron distributions and proton affinities for several mono- and diaza[5]helicenes; computational results, together with experimental data concerning crystal structures and propensity to methylation of the nitrogen atom(s), provide a basis for designing azahelicene complexes with transition metal ions.
Keywords: azahelicenes; DFT calculations; crystal structures; N-methylation; transition metal complexes
