Light-triggered self-assembly of triarylamine-based nanospheres

Abstract

Tailored triarylamine units modified with terpyridine ligands were coordinated to Zn2+ ions and characterized as discrete dimeric entities. Interestingly, when these complexes were subsequently irradiated with simple visible light in chloroform, they readily self-assembled into monodisperse spheres with a mean diameter of 160 nm.
