Using quantum mechanical calculations we investigate the structural, spectroscopic, and mechanical properties of ivyanes, a novel family of helical hydrocarbons recently synthesized by Sherburn's group . The Young elastic modulus is predicted to be 1.92 GPa, which is about thirty times smaller than that computed for the α-helix.
