Synthesis, Properties and Chemistry of  Cyclophanes Containing Nonplanar  Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

Nonplanar aromatic compounds are interesting molecules because they provide opportunities to learn how chemical and physical properties are affected by changes in structure.  Such compounds are challenging synthetic targets due to fact that they are strained, and the level of synthetic challenge typically increases with the amount of strain.  As a result, powerful synthetic methodology and effective general strategies are required to enable the synthesis of such compounds, especially those that are at more highly strained.  Details of our work aimed at the synthesis and study of cyclophanes that contain bent aromatic systems will be presented.
