Self-assembly of Chiral Supra-amphiphile


Supra-amphiphile provides a brand-new powerful strategy for the construction of functional materials and showed fascinating prospects in a variety of field. When merging with chirality science, the concept of chiral supra-amphiphile arises, which is an important subclass of supra-amphiphile. In this review, we have provided a general introduction to the concept and design principle of chiral supra-amphiphile as well as their self-assemblies. We also highlighted some progress of chiral supra-amphiphile in several application fields, such as chiroptical switch, chiral recognition, chiral catalysis and chiral luminescent soft materials. Although some elegant reviews have comprehensively looked back the development and achievement of supra-amphiphile, its research progress in chirality science has not been well summarized. We hope this review will provide useful guidance and understanding of self-assembly of chiral supra-amphiphiles, which we believe will benefit scientists in both colloidal chemistry and chirality science.
