Perylene bisimide macrocycles and their self-assembly on HOPG surfaces

Author affiliations

Abstract

Acetylene-linked macrocycles incorporating multiple perylene tetracarboxylic acid bisimide (PBI) chromophores have been synthesised and separated by recycling GPC. The very first example of such macrocycles, i.e., cyclic trimer 5, containing three PBI dyes self-assembles into highly ordered donut-shaped unique hexagonal nanopatterns on HOPG surfaces as revealed by atomic force microscopy (AFM).
