Abstract

Helical organosilica materials were synthesized for the first time using a novel binaphthyl-based chiral co-monomer in less than 1 hour. The incorporation of a chiral co-monomer in the wall was shown to influence the curvature of the helical materials. As the amount of the chiral co-monomer was increased, the degree of curvature increased, illustrating the importance of this monomer to the overall morphology.
