Rays of hope for development of materials for 3D displays and medical applications

(Osaka University) Scientists at Osaka University aligned two hexahelicenes in various orientations, theoretically examined, and proposed that S- and X-shaped double hexahelicenes aligned in right symmetry were a key to improve the properties of helicenes. The researchers then synthesized double hexahelicenes to demonstrate their improved chiroptical properties as chiral materials: circular dichroism and circularly polarized luminescence.
