      Abstract: Binaphthyl-based systems have been   under extensive investigation during the past years as sensors,   host molecules, asymmetric catalysts, chiral-conjugated polymers,   and high performance materials. This review mainly focuses on the   synthesis, structural investigation, and applications of   binaphthyl-based macromolecules. It begins with a brief overview   on design and synthesis of direct or indirect-linked   binaphthyl-based monomers. Fundamentals of the synthesis and   macromolecular structure of binaphthyl hosts as chiral catalysts   for various asymmetric organic reactions are then provided. In   addition, recent complexation studies of some podands and   macrocycles derived from binaphthyls are highlighted.   Furthermore, the synthesis and properties of main chain chiral   conjugated polymers having optically active 1,1′-binaphthyls are   discussed. Finally, we focus on recent work involving the   incorporation of binaphthyl units into the macromolecules   backbone to prepare processable high performance polymers. © 2013   The Royal Society of Chemistry.
