Water tuned the helical nanostructures and supramolecular chirality in organogels

Author affiliations

Abstract

Water was found to tune the self-assembled nanostructures of a cationic amphiphile in organic solvents from nanofibers to helical tapes, helical tubes and chiral nanotwists with various pitch lengths depending on water content. Inversion of CD spectra was observed in the water-triggered polar and non-polar solvent gels.
