Hydrogen bond-mediated self-assembly is a powerful strategy for creating nanoscale structures. However, little is known about the fidelity of assembly processes that must occur when similar and potentially competing hydrogen-bonding motifs are present. Furthermore, there is a continuing need for new modules and strategies that can amplify the relatively(More)
The synthesis and conformational studies of heterocyclic ureas (amides) 1-7 and their concentration-dependent unfolding to form multiply hydrogen-bonded complexes are described. Ureas 1 and 7 were prepared by reacting 2-aminopyridine and aminonaphthyridine 25, respectively, with triphosgene and 4-(dimethylamino)pyridine (DMAP). Amine 25, in turn, was(More)
The synthesis of a series of polymeric Eu(III) complexes with polyester ligands, along with supporting emission spectra, luminescence lifetimes, and, for a Eu block copolymer film, atomic force microscopy (AFM) data, is presented. Dibenzoylmethane was derivatized with a hydroxyl initiator site (dbmOH, 1) for tin octoate catalyzed ring opening polymerization(More)
The synthesis of a series of star-shaped, biocompatible polyesters--polylactides (PLAs), polycaprolactones (PCLs), and various copolymer analogues--with either labile iron(II) tris-bipyridyl or luminescent ruthenium(II) tris-bipyridyl cores is described. These polymers were readily assembled by a convergent, metal-template-assisted approach that entailed(More)
