The synthesis and structural analysis of a quintuple [6]helicene with a corannulene core is reported. The compound was synthesized from corannulene in three steps including a five-fold intramolecular direct arylation. X-ray crystallographic analysis revealed a C5-symmetric propeller-shaped structure and one-dimensional alignment in the solid state. The enantiomers of the quintuple [6]helicene were successfully separated by HPLC, and the chirality of the two fractions was identified by CD spectroscopy. A kinetic study yielded a racemization barrier of 34.2 kcal/mol, which is slightly lower than that of pristine [6]helicene. DFT calculations indicate a rapid bowl-to-bowl inversion of the corannulene moiety and a step-by-step chiral inversion pathway for the five [6]helicene moieties.
