full agreement with the insensitivity of its rotation with respect
to changes in the molecular environment. The constant [XI,
value does not imply that the camphor sulfonamide and camphanic amide shells are not densely packed nor that they do not
possess frozen-in conformations. However, in these densely
packed surfaces the frozen-in conformations all have the same
optical activity and no internal compensation effects are operative here. Also the number and strength of the hydrogen bonds
in these cases will be lower than in the case of the amino acid
derived dendrimers. Further research to elucidate the reasons
for the observations presented here are in progress. It is foreseen
that research on chiral dendrimers with highly packed shells will
yield important information for this type of curved structures;
structures that are so prominently present in nature.

In order to discriminate between disorder and pseudo-ceiitrosymmetry, we
performed experiments using scalemic mixtures of D-Phe and L-Tyr in the
formation of the fifth-generation box. In sharp contrast to the [.IDvalues of 0
for the pure o-Phe or L-Tyr, we found [.ID = + 16 (c = 1 , DMSO) for the 50: 50
scalemic mixture of D-Phe and L-Tyr, and optical rotations between + 16 and
0 for the other mixtures studied. The trend observed is indicative for some kind
of pseudo-centrosymmetric ordering in the shell. in which in the case of the
S O : 50 scalemic mixture both units can adopt their preferred conformation and
still the most dense packing is formed.
This conclusion seems at first glance to be in contrast with "la coupe du roi"
in which both chiral halves are of the same handedness, however a chiral
dendritic surface possesses molecular chirality while "la coupe du roi" has only
macroscopic chirality, see K. Mislow, Bull. Sur. Chim. Fr. 1994, 131, 534-538.

Facile Synthesis and Solid-state Structure
of a Benzylic Amide [2]Catenane**
Andrew G. Johnston, David A. Leigh,* Robin J.
Pritchard, and Michael D. Deegan
The synthesis of interlocked molecular rings, catenanes, is one
of the greatest challenges in preparative chemistry." - 31 Large
macromolecular catenane structures (10' D) are found in DNA,
where they appear to act as intermediates during the replication,
transcription, and recombination p;oce~ses,[~~
and are probably formed in small quantities in some polymerization reactions
by the chance threading of growing molecular chains through
large rings.c61Recently the structural characteristics of smaller
catenanes (lo3 D) have earmarked them, together with their
relatives the rotaxanes, as key elements in the development of
components for nanoscale electronic devices and molecular machines such as molecular shuttles, switches, and information
storage systems.[3* Here we report the serendipitous formation
of a new amide-based [2]catenane (1) prepared in one step from
two commercially available starting materials (see Scheme 2).
The catenane is obtained in 20 % yield (remarkable for an eightmolecule condensation) following a chromatography-free purification procedure simple enough to be performed in a wellequipped high school or undergraduate laboratory. The
structure of 1 has been confirmed by N M R spectroscopy, mass
spectrometry, and, in particular, by X-ray crystallography,
which reveals a beautiful self-assembled system held together by
networks of inter- and intramolecular hydrogen bonds and perfectly tessellating n-stacking interactions between four aromatic
rings. Each catenane consists of two identical, interlocked, 26membered rings with an internal cavity of 4 x 6 A, making 1 the
smallest interlocked ring system yet isolated.

As part of a program to prepare chemical sensors for small
gas molecules we identified the simple amide macrocycle 2 as a
potential molecular receptor for carbon dioxide. Molecular
modeling indicated a favorable mode and enthalpy of interaction of 2 with CO, (Scheme 1)J8] and the synthesis was attemptC

addition of equimolar quantities of isophthaloyl dichloride (3)
and para-xylylenediamine (4) to a solution of triethylamine in
chloroform, a precipitate began to form almost immediately.
After 24 h the precipitate was removed by filtration, and the
filtrate was washed with acid, base, and water, and concentrated
to dryness to give a white solid which proved to be a single
compound. 'H and 13C NMR spectra in [D,]dimethylsulfoxide
(Figs. l a and lb) and the low molecular weight mass spectrum
(< 1000 Da, Fig. Ic) were consistent with the anticipated
macrocyclic structure. However, in complexation experiments
the material showed no signs of binding CO,.

Single crystals were obtained (by slow diffusion of acetone

suitable for structural investigation by X-ray crystallography

not occur; the [2 + 21 macrocycle formed was not in fact a
discrete molecule but rather the [2]catenane 1 with a second
macrocycle threaded tightly through the cavity of the first!

The crystal lattice has a fascinating layered structure. In both
directions within each layer the
catenanes assemble to maximize
both inter- and intramolecular rcstacking interactions. Each stack
consists of four units in three different catenanes in an ABCD
sequence (Fig. 4). The four aromatic rings in each stack are
close to parallel and offset from each other in the classic manner
which maximizes favorable electrostatic interactions within the
Every aromatic ring in every catenane is involved in
one of these rc-stacks, which pack perfectly to form a single layer.

hydrogen bonding (two intra- and one intermolecular) are clearly shown. The layers
are held together by an exquisite hydrogen bonding array in which four intramolecular hydrogen bonds per catenane hold the macrocyclic rings of an individual
molecule in a fixed orientation and two intermolecular hydrogen bonds per

The catenane layers, in turn, are held together by van der
Waals interactions and two intermolecular hydrogen bonds between each catenane and its nearest neighbors in the layers
above and below (Fig. 3). The interlayer hydrogen bonds are
formed between the amide hydrogen atoms of the inverted
amide groups and the carbonyl groups of the cisoid isophthaloyldiamide units. The remaining amide hydrogen atoms and
carbonyl groups (NS' and 0 2 ; N5 and 02') appear, by the positioning of the heavy atoms, to be connected through an unusual
hydrogen bonding architecture in which the amide proton either
binds to the n-cloud of the O=C bond or binds in a nonlinear
arrangement to the oxygen atom. Since the H atoms are not
resolved in the structure, these two possibilities cannot currently
be distinguished.
The X-ray crystal structure supports the proposal that the
driving force for catenane formation is hydrogen bonding between the newly formed 1,3-diamide units and carbonyl groups
on the acid chloride or other intermediates. The stacking of the
electron-rich xylylene and electron-poor isophthaloyl rings may
also play a supporting role. In the mannerfirst introduced with
the Stoddart catenanes, the formation of new functionalgroups in
this reaction controls the self-assembly of a topologicully complex
The following communication["] shows that 1 is not an isolated example of a [2]catenane, but rather the simplest of a
diverse family of catenanes derived in one step from aromatic
1,3-dicarbonyl compounds and benzylic diamines. Self-assembly processes currently provide the only viable route to these
kinds of topologically complex molecules which exhibit, in both
solution and the solid state, a range of structural and dynamic
properties not available to topologically trivial molecules.
Experimental Procedure[' '1
To a stirred solution of triethylamine (1.19 g, 18.9 mmol) in anhydrous chloroform
(130mL, stabilized with amylenes not ethanol) [19] under argon were added 3
(0.87 g, 4.3 mmol) in anhydrous chloroform (130 mL) and 4 (0.58 g, 4.3 mmol) in
anhydrous chloroform (130 mL) simultaneously, over 30 min by means of motordriven syringe pumps. The mixture was allowed to stir for about 12 h and then
filtered. The filtrate was washed with 1 M aqueous hydrochloric acid (3 x 200 mL).
then 5 % aqueous sodium hydroxide (3 x 200 mL), and finally water (3 x 200 mL).

[18] Few examples of self-assembly processes are straightforward enough to be
introduced into undergraduate laboratories. The synthesis of 1 is an exception
and has been successfully incorporated into the first-year organic chemistry
course at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology.
[19] The use of chloroform that has not been rigorously dried or contains ethanol
gives lower yields of the [2]catenane and, more problematically, produces
byproducts arising from the partial hydrolysis of the starting acid chloride.
These are not removed in the above workup procedure. However, in this case
the [2]catenanecan be obtained pure by carefully washing the end product with
cold chloroform.

The unique architectures and structural characteristics of
catenanes and rotaxanes have identified them as attractive
targets in the search for nanoscale devices and molecular electronic applications.['] Accordingly, following the pioneering
work of Stoddart et a1.f2]and Sauvage et al.,13] there is great
interest in the development of new catenane systems that can be
obtained in high yieldk4- "1 and especially syntheses that are
tolerant towards structural variations which can be used to control the dynamic properties of the catenanes. In 1992 Hunter
and Vogtle et al. reported the first amide-based catenane~,[~.
