Abstract

The first spirobifluorenes comprising two binaphthyl moieties with silicon or germanium at the site of fusion have been synthesized and fully characterized. X-ray crystallographic analysis reveals that both molecules have highly distorted structures, resulting in a low barrier for interconversion between the two atropisomers; the barrier was calculated from the temperature dependency of the NMR spectra.
