Water-induced the expression of supramolecular chirality for phenylalanine derivative

Abstract

The chiral self-assembly in the biological system was carried out in water. To understand the water role in the expression of supramolecular chirality , an amino acid derivative, N, N-diphenylalanine-3, 4, 9, 10-perylene tetracarboxylicdiimide(PBI-Phe), was synthesized based on perylene -3, 4, 9, 10-tetracarboxylic dianhydride with phenylalanine. This molecule self-assembles into spherical structure in pure DMSO, but the helical fiber structure appears when the molecular is in the mixed solution of DMSO and water. Furthermore, the increasing addition of water could lead to supramolecular chiral amplification.
