Water-induced helical supramolecular polymerization and gel formation of an alkylene-tethered perylene bisimide dyad

Author affiliations

Abstract

An alkylene-tethered perylene bisimide (PBI) dyad with hydrophilic substituents forms helical supramolecular polymers that can be visualized by AFM in THF–water mixtures. The supramolecular polymers also form thixotropic gel-like lyotropic mesophases in the mixtures.
