HOT Article: Arene interactions for conformational control

In this HOT article, conformational analysis of nine designed flexible 1,2-diarylethanes with different substituents show syn conformation due to π–π interactions by 1H NMR in solution, this carries over to the solid state for three compounds while two show anti conformation in the solid state by X-ray crystallography.  These models may provide an important experimental basis for further development of computational/theoretical models for a better understanding of arene interactions in flexible compounds both at the molecular and supramolecular level.
