John D. Wallis and colleagues at Nottingham Trent University, the University of Southampton, Brock University and the University of Fribourg look at the (1,5) interactions between aldehyde groups and hydroxyl or methoxy groups in this CrystEngComm Hot article.
The group systematically compare naphthalene and triptycene frameworks, to greater understand O…C=O molecular interactions.
