Control of dynamic helicity at the macro- and supramolecular level

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this review, various systems developed in recent years which aim to control dynamic helicity at the macro- and supramolecular level are discussed. The strong interactions between the individual molecular components in these controlled helical assemblies, ranging from columnar aggregates to helical polymers and cholesteric liquid crystals, result in stereoinduction from the molecular level to the level of these macro- and supramolecular helical architectures. Therefore these systems are potentially useful for various applications, including responsive materials and chirality sensors and amplifiers.
