Sly silyl caught in the act: Protonation of a mesitylene ring by the strongly acidic arenium carborane [CH(3)C(6)H(6)]- [CHB(11)Me(5)Br(6)] initiates a cascade reaction that results in a stable beta-silyl allyl cation (see picture, H yellow, C blue, silyl allyl group red). Remarkably, the driving force in the reaction suffices to disrupt a stable a...
This perspective discusses the important aspects of the design of molecular gear systems based on triptycene. Molecular systems are categorized into three classes according to the orientation of the gear axes: i) bent (bevel gears), ii) linear, and ii) parallel (spur gears). To date, no examples of molecular gears in which the axes of rotation lie...
