2011 (English)In: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, ISSN 1433-7851, E-ISSN 1521-3773, Vol. 50, no 35, 8095-8099 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Helical organosilica materials were synthesized for the first time using a novel binaphthyl-based chiral co-monomer in less than 1 hour. The incorporation of a chiral co-monomer in the wall was shown to influence the curvature of the helical materials. As the amount of the chiral co-monomer was increased, the degree of curvature increased, illustrating the importance of this monomer to the overall morphology.
