Acid-mediated topological control in a functionalized foldamer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Induced conformational change provides a powerful mechanism to modulate the structure and function of molecules. Here we describe the synthesis of chiral, surface-functionalized oligomeric pyridine/imidazolidin-2-one foldamers, and interrogate their acid-mediated transition between linear and helical topologies.
