Cyclobutane-based compounds represent unusual group of organic materials. The central cyclobutane unit is a key component of naturally occurring biomolecules in bacteria, fungi, plants, etc. The cyclobutanoid moiety in dimethyl truxillate can be a useful functional linker in important fatty acids, amino acids, terpenes, steroids, etc. Besides its widespread bio-significance, cyclobutane-based compounds present unique UV resistance. For instance, truxillic acid (trans-2,4-diphenylcyclobutane-1,3-dicarboxylic acid) is a photo- and chemo-stable crystalline cyclobutene dicarboxylic acid. Due to its stability and molecular architectural promise, important applications of dimethyl truxillate may include:

  • Monomer to synthesize cyclobutanoid polymers
  • Building block for photoactive materials
  • Precursor for

o   cyclobutanoid metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)

o   high-tech mechanophores
