Abstract

The geometrical structures and properties of conjugated polyhelicenes and annelated fused-ring carbon helices with analogous frameworks were theoretically studied at the HF/6-31G* and B3LYP/6-31G* levels. These studies focused on the stability of the fused-ring structures with special emphasis on the helical geometrical arrangements. To elucidate bonding patterns, the Orbitals, electron density contours, and the electrostatic potential of these helical compounds were analyzed. The structure of fused polynaphthalenes arranged in a helical spiral can be regarded as part of a locally helical graphite lattice that is expected to give rise to special electronic properties along the helically layered conjugated single sheet that can be regarded as a single extended π system but also involving local layer-to-layer π-π interactions that are typical in ordinary graphite. This dual feature might lead to novel materials.
