Synthesis of [2.2]-paracylophane and Derivatives

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Cyclophanes are a general group of molecules defined by an aromatic ring, bridged with alkyl chains, to
form a more expansive ring system. In partcular, [2,2]-paracyclophane is a highly rigid, geometrically
strained cyclophane which is valuable as a parent molecule towards useful derivatves. Using chemistry developed by the Roberts Group, our build, cyclize, and contract strategy, we propose a synthetic route to the parent molecule and derivatives.
