Solvophobically Driven Self-Assembly of Chiral Supramolecular Dendrimers



Virgil Percec, A E. Dulcey, Y Miura, U Edlund, V S. Balagurusamy, Steven Hudson, H Duan, Paul A. Heiney


The self assembly in dilute solution of chiral supramolecular dendrimers is investigated by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy. These results are compared with analysis of the bulk state by CD spectroscopy x-ray diffraction electron diffraction and electron microscopy. The mechanism of chiral self-assembly is discussed.
