Spontaneous chiral self-assembly of achiral AIEgens into AIEgen-silica hybrid nanotubes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Antipodal chiral AIEgen-silica hybrid mesostructures were fabricated by spontaneous chiral self-assembly of the achiral amphiphilic AIEgen 2-[4-(1,2,2-triphenylethenyl)phenoxy]-acetic acid via a co-structure directing route in the absence of any symmetry-breaking agent. The produced AIEgen-silica hybrid mesostructured nanotubes showed chiral features with optical activity originating from J-aggregation with an excess of one stereochemical hand of the helical conformation of the AIEgen.
