Abstract

We performed the self-assembly of a 1,18-cytidylic acid-appended bolaamphiphile (C18C) in lemon juice, which contained citric acid, and succeeded in forming left-handed helical nanofibers with diameters, lengths, and pitches of ca. 6–7 nm, several hundred nm to 5 μm, and ca. 30–40 nm, respectively.
