Covalently stabilized self-assembled chlorophyll nanorods by olefin metathesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

A new chlorophyll derivative with peripheral olefinic chains has been synthesised and its self-assembly properties have been studied, revealing formation of well-defined nanorods. These nanorods were stabilized and rigidified by olefin metathesis reaction as confirmed by spectroscopic and microscopic methods.
