Chirality inversion in hydrogen-bonded rhodanine–oligothiophene derivatives by solvent and temperature†
The self-assembly process of hydrogen-bonded quinquethiophene–rhodanine derivatives has been explored as a function of solvent and temperature. We demonstrate the divergent supramolecular chirality emerging from a single enantiomer by subtle changes in solvent mixtures and sample preparation protocol. Spectroscopic techniques have proved the presence of aggregates where H-bonding interactions play a crucial role.
