Abstract

(Figure Presented) The dynamic dual chirality of D2-symmetric saddle-shaped porphyrin 1 decreases the stereochemical complexity of cocrystallization with racemic mandelic acid derivatives, such as BrMA, and allows spontaneous optical resolution (see picture). Each resulting cocrystal is porous and consists of one-handed double-helical porphyrin arrays in which chiral guests are enantioselectively included.
