Amplification of chirality in benzene tricarboxamide helical supramolecular polymers

Author affiliations

Abstract

The chirality of benzene tricarboxamides is expressed and amplified into the helicity of self-assembled columnar aggregates according to ‘sergeants and soldiers’ and ‘majority rules’ principles; the strength of the amplification is analysed quantitatively and the effect of the number of chiral groups in the sergeants is studied.
