Probing the self-assembly and stability of oligohistidine based rod-like micelles by aggregation induced luminescence†
The synthesis and self-assembly of a new C2-symmetric oligohistidine amphiphile equipped with an aggregation induced emission luminophore is reported. We observe the formation of highly stable and ordered rod-like micelles in phosphate buffered saline, with a critical aggregation concentration below 200 nM. Aggregation induced emission of the luminophore confirms the high stability of the anisotropic assemblies in serum.
