Abstract

Attempts at synthesizing certain halohelicenes for studies in the following areas are described: 1) the testing of a new method of resolving 2) electron spin resonance (ESR). Since the purpose of the study was twofold, the decision to synthesize monochloro derivatives of hexahelicene was based on the time element and the comparative ease in which these particular compounds were thought to have been brought about (i.e. in direct comparison to polyhalo and higher order helicenes). In addition to the traditional historical, theoretical, and experimental sections, an appendix contained a few suggestions relative to helicene research is included.
