Supramolecular assembly by time-programmed acid autocatalysis

Author affiliations

Abstract

Autocatalytic pH clocks can be useful to control self-assembly in the time domain. Their applications are, however, limited by the currently available toolbox. We describe here an approach for the design of a dynamic pH switch that generates intense alkali-to-acid changes after a tailorable lagtime (from minutes to hours), and we demonstrate its application for the time-controlled supramolecular self-assembly of nanofibers.
