Synthesis of numerous optically active rod-shaped oligo(2,3-dioxyfunctionalized)naphthalenes connected at their 1,4-positions was achieved using oxidative coupling under CuCl2/α-methylbenzylamine conditions by second-order asymmetric transformation. We believe this method is practical and should contribute to the field of material science.
