Indiana: Fall on the Indiana University campus in Bloomington

We’ve been to 49 U.S. states so far, and this July, we’ll be visiting Hawaii to finish the list with number 50. In honor of our trip, we’ll be posting a photo from every state in the days leading up to our last state!

2,7,12,17,22-Penta-tert-butyl-4,9,14,19,24-pentacyano-pentabenzo[ab,fg,kl,pq,uv]-[25]annulene (Compound CS, cyanostar)

This 5-fold symmetric cyclic molecule, called a macrocycle, has a positively charged central cavity that “captures” anions such as borates, chlorates, perchlorates, and phosphates. Pairs of cyanostars sandwich together, trapping the anion using their slightly concave shapes (not shown).

Designed at Indiana University Bloomington, the cyanostars have been shown to be able to be assembled into molecular structures called rotaxanes which resemble wheels and axles and act as simple molecular machines which can be manipulated by heat or light.

Piece requested by Jane.
