Deformed Chiral [n]MetacyclophanesThe new dithiametacyclophane 3c and the thiaazametacyclophanes 6a, b are chiral, but do not contain chirality centres. They are obtained by cyclization of 1,3-propanedithiol (2), or of the thiaza precursors 5a, b, with the bis(bromomethyl) compounds 1, 4a, b. The dynamic behaviour of the aliphatic chains in 3c, and 6a, b (flipping/rotation) have been studied by dynamic NMR. X-ray analyses of 3c and 6a document the out-of-plane deformation of the boat-shaped benzene ring. The circular dichroism of enantiomer-enriched 3c is reported.
