The project is focused on the synthesis of extended (hetero)helicenes, bi(hetero)helicenes, (hetero)cycloarenes and reactivity of helicene pyridazines. In particular, the attention will be paid to chiroptical switches (based on exciton coupling), single-molecule electromechanical properties and charge transport in thin layers. Chirality issues will be central to all endeavours. A concept of the covalent template synthesis of pi-conjugated macrocycles will be explored.
