Effective Supramolecular Chirogenesis in Ethane-Bridged Bis-Porphyrinoids
AbstractThis feature article gives a general introduction to the phenomenon of supramolecular chirogenesis using the most representative examples of different chirogenic assemblies on the basis of ethane-bridged bis-porphyrinoids. Supramolecular chirogenesis is based upon a smart combination of supramolecular chemistry and chirality sciences and deals with various aspects of asymmetry induction, transfer, amplification, and modulation. These chiral processes are governed by numerous noncovalent supramolecular forces thus allowing a judicious, mechanistic, and dynamic control by applying a variety of internal and external influencing factors. Currently, supramolecular chirogenesis is widely used in different fields of fundamental and applied branches of science and modern technology, touching on such important issues as origin of chirality on the Earth, asymmetry sensing, enantioselective catalysis, nonlinear optics, polymer and materials science, pharmacy and medicine, nanotechnology, molecular and supramolecular devices, chiral memory, absolute configuration determination, etc.
