Title

Highly ordered assembly of π-stacked distyrylbenzenes by oligoadenines

Language

English

Abstract

A well-defined nanofibrous structure with lengths of several hundred nanometers and cross-sectional width of a single size (∼6±0.5 nm) was self-assembled by oligoadenines, dA20, and thymine-appended distyrylbenzene through binary complementary A-T hydrogen bond formation and the strong π-π stacking interactions. This demonstrated a useful supramolecular self-assembling approach to control the packing order of π-conjugated molecules and provided a practical means to enhance the optical properties of a material. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
