Synthesis of Single and Double Dibenzohelicenes via Rhodium‐Catalyzed Intramolecular [2+2+2] and [2+1+2+1] Cycloadditions

Dibenzo[7]helicenes were synthesized with up to 99% ee via the rhodium(I)/binap complex‐catalyzed enantioselective intramolecular [2+2+2] cycloaddition of 2‐phenylnaphthalene‐linked tryines. Additionally, [2+1+2+1] cycloaddition products, twisted anthracenes, were also synthesized by using difluorphos as a ligand. Although this compound is not configurationally stable at elevated temperature, the Scholl reaction of which afforded a configurationally stable double dibenzo[6]helicene. The thus obtained dibenzo[7]helicene exhibited good circularly polarized luminescence property and the double dibenzo[6]helicene exhibited high fluorescence quantum yield.
