Helical chirality in dendronized polyarylacetylenes

Author affiliations


Dendronized polymers are an archetypal polymer architecture upon which new concepts for single-molecule and bottom-up self-assembly of nanotechnologies can be derived. Helical order and control of its screw sense within the cylindrical macromolecules promises to enhance the utility of these building blocks. Herein we summarize efforts to program the handedness of helical, self-organizable dendronized polyarylacetylenes as well as of related dendronized polymers.
