Coiled molecules in spring loaded devices.


PMID 17117825

Abstract

A cylindrical capsule containing a coiled alkane incorporates spacers. The alkane lengthens and gauche strain is relieved. The spacer can be removed to reset the system to the original state. The system represents a spring-loaded device that operates reversibly in response to acids and bases.
