Abstract
We describe the design and synthetic realisation of [2]catenanes characterised by having huge rings that can rotate freely and shift laterally within the constraints of concatenation. The synthetic strategy, which is based on using a carbonate group as a covalent template and oxidative dimerization of alkynes to achieve ring formation, is versatile with respect to ring size and the presence of functional groups. The monocyclic constitutional isomer of the catenane is available by a simple exchange of steps in the sequence. EPR spectroscopy revealed that in solution the catenanes adopt all possible co-conformations in equal abundances. The thermotropic liquid crystallinity of the [2]catenanes and their corresponding non-intertwined macrocycles proves intermolecular ordering in the bulk phase. The [2]catenanes were polymerized through ester formation and through acyclic diene metathesis. All of the poly[2] catenanes have rather low degrees of polymerisation ( approximate to 10), possibly because cyclisation occurs. For the preparation of [n]catenanes having n > 3, we propose fusing the rings of [2]catenanes so that the crucial steps of threading and cyclisation need only occur during the synthesis of the smallest catenane.
