Abstract

1,8-Diarylnaphthalenes show interesting potential as chiral sensors, environment sensors and stereodynamic switches. The kinetics and thermodynamics of the conformational equilibria of two such compounds are described. These compounds, along with others reported previously, show that several features can be used to tune the conformational behaviour of these compounds, giving the possibility to design molecules for specific applications in the future.
