Four kinds of bis(Ni-salphen) complexes containing a 2-methylenepropane-1,3-diyl linker were synthesised and characterised. Crystal structural analysis revealed that one of the complexes folded into a helical structure, in which two Ni atoms were at a distance of 3.2 angstrom from each other. NMR measurements suggested that a similar folded state was maintained in solution, and the energy barrier for refolding through an unfolded state was 47 kJ mol(-1). The folded complex also exhibited a significant bathochromic shift in its UV-Vis absorption structure. Addition of sodium ions caused unfolding of the complexes, and the corresponding spectra were attributed to a virtually isolated state. DFT calculations reproduced well the energy barrier and folding-induced bathochromic shift.
