Abstract

New rigid rods with 4σ, 6σ, 10σ, 12σ, and 16σ bond separations have been prepared from the pentacyclic diene 3 using ACE (alkene plus cyclobutene epoxide) and s-tetrazine coupling techniques and their shapes evaluated using AM1 calculations. The X-ray structure of the 6σ-rod 5 is reported.
