Abstract

Self-assembly owing to noncovalent interactions provides a powerful tool for the creation of structures at a molecular level. Metal-connected diblock polymers offer a versatile building block for a large variety of nanostructures. Here, we report the supramolecular self-assembly of bis(2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine) metal-connected diblock copolymer on graphene nanoribbons by the formation of donor–acceptor complexes mediated by enhanced van der Waals interactions. This approach promotes the self-assembly of metallopolymers and graphene nanoribbons, which yields a prospective route to novel nanomaterials.
