New biacridinyl atropisomers were obtained from symmetric ligand 2,2’-dihydroxy-9,9’-biacridine (4), prepared from 9-chloro-2-methoxyacridine. Alternative O-acylation and alkylation led to different polycycles and to a biacridinyl crown ether. The molecular structures of 2,2’-di(p-chlorobenzoyloxy)-9,9’-biacridinyl (5) and (9,9’-bisacridinyl)-2,2’-dihydroxy-bis-(camphanate) ester (13) were solved by X-Ray crystallography, showing a ‘scissor-like’ host conformation and guest inclusion of chloroform and acetonitrile. The determination of X-Ray structure of one diastereomer (13) allows to assign the absolute configuration of enantiomerically recovered (aR)-(-)-2,2’-dihydroxy-9,9’-biacridinyl.
