Guest molecules (benzene and 1,4-dioxane) can be incorporated into 9,10-dipentafluorophenylanthracene (DPFPA) by tuning the arrangement of its one-dimensional (1D) column-like structure with CF-π interactions of its pentafluorophenyl group in the solid state. The two guest molecules are trapped in cavities due to benzene-anthracene edge-to-face and CH-π interactions with DPFPA, respectively.
Letters in Organic Chemistry publishes original letters on all areas of organic chemistry including synthesis, bioorganic, medicinal, natural products, organometallic, supramolecular, molecular recognition and physical organic chemistry. The emphasis is placed on publishing quality papers very rapidly. Letters are processed rapidly and take full advantage of the Internet technology both for the submission and the review of the manuscripts. The journal is essential reading for all organic chemists both in academia and industry.
