About this book

Iptycenes Chemistry: From Synthesis to Applications provides a comprehensive overview of the development of iptycene chemistry in the past seventy years. This book covers: (1) the basic nomenclature and general properties of iptycenes and their derivatives; (2) the synthesis and functionalization reactions of triptycenes, pentiptycenes, higher iptycenes, heterotriptycenes, and homotriptycenes; (3) the methods for the preparation of iptycene-based polymers with different types; and (4) the applications of iptycenes and their derivatives in molecular machines, materials science, host-guest chemistry, self-assembly, coordination chemistry, physical organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, and so on. Consequently, such a book is not only helpful to researchers working in iptycene chemistry, but can also facilitate future research in wide areas.

About the authors

Chuan-Feng Chen received his Ph.D. degree from Nanjing University in 1994. After working as a postdoctoral fellow at Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS) for two years, he became an associate professor at the same Institute in 1996. From 1998 to 2001, he worked as a visiting scientist at University of New Mexico, USA. Then, he was promoted to a full professor of ICCAS in 2001. In 2000, he was selected for Hundred Talents Program by CAS. In 2006, he was awarded National Science Fund of China for Distinguished Young Scholars. Professor Chen is the author of more than 170 scientific publications. His current research interests include supramolecular chemistry based on novel synthetic hosts, hydrogen-bond-mediated molecular assemblies, helical foldamer and helicene chemistry.
Ying-Xian Ma received her B.S. degree in Chemistry from Nankai University in 2010. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate under the direction of Professor Chuan-Feng Chen at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her research focuses on the synthesis and applicaitons of iptycenes in host-guest chemistry.
