Supramolecular self-assemblies for bacterial cell agglutination driven by directional charge-transfer interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two supramolecular amphiphiles are fabricated through directional charge-transfer interactions, which self-assemble into nanofibers and nanoribbons. Due to the existence of galactose on their surface, these self-assemblies act as a cell glue to agglutinate E. coli, benefiting from multivalent interactions.
