Light-controlled smart nanotubes based on the orthogonal assembly of two homopolymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two homopolymers can orthogonally self-assemble into pseudo-copolymer based on terminal host–guest interactions, and these supramolecular copolymers further fabricate one-dimensional nanotubes in water. By applying alternate UV/visible light, the aggregates can reversibly assemble and disassemble by means of the association and disassociation of active connection.
