Helicity Inversion in Novel Responsive Foldamers Induced by Achiral Halide Anions.
R.M. Meudtner, S. Hecht – 2008
A surprising about-face: Click chemistry was used for the efficient synthesis of a new class of foldamers, referred to as clickamers, that display unusual folding and recognition properties. In the presence of halide ions—achiral species—they undergo an unprecedented helix inversion.
