Abstract

In the methylene blue (MB)–phenylalanine (Phe)–tungsten(VI) oxide (WO3) colloid ternary aqueous solution, the MB H-aggregates, which could recognize the chirality of D- and L-Phe, were formed and investigated by means of UV-Vis absorption and CD spectroscopy. These results demonstrate a chirality transfer and amplification from only the pre-adsorbed Phe molecules to MB aggregates formed on the WO3 colloid surface via non-covalent interactions.
