Self-Complementary and Narcissistic Self-Sorting of bis-Acridinium Tweezers

Abstract

A molecular tweezer incorporating two acridinium moieties linked by a 1,3-dipyridylbenzene spacer was synthesized in three steps. The formation of its self-complementary dimer in water was demonstrated as the result of pi-pi stacking and hydrophobic interactions. Moreover, a 1:1 mixture of this bis-acridinium tweezer with one build on a 2,6-diphenylpyridyl spacer evidenced a narcissistic self-sorting behaviour in water.
