An interfacial sol-gel synthesis of inorganic hollow microspheres in room-temperature ionic liquids is newly developed. When metal alkoxides such as titanium tetrabutoxide, Ti(OBu)4, are dissolved in anhydrous toluene and injected into 1-buthyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([C4mim]PF6) under vigorous stirring, hollow titania microspheres are(More)
CdTe nanocrystals (NCs) passivated with chiral ligands d- and l-cysteinemethylester hydrochloride were prepared and observed to exhibit characteristic CD profiles with symmetrical mirror images depending on the chirality of the capping ligand. The optical activity of CdTe NCs is shown to originate from the distorted CdS shell including chiral capping(More)
α,β-Linked oligothiazoles with head-to-tail connectivity are presented as a new family of helical scaffolds. Combinations of palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions at the 5- and 4-positions of 2-phenylthiazole led to the synthesis of oligo(2-phenylthiazoles) with ortho linkages with a variety of defined sequences. The secondary structures of the(More)
Oxidized triangle terarylenes with asymmetric side-aryl units are synthesized, which show photo-induced turn-on yellow luminescence based on photochemical intramolecular ring-cyclization reaction in the solid state. A direct photo-patterning process for organic electroluminescent devices is successfully demonstrated with selective light irradiation through(More)
The self-assembly of a chiral perylene bisimide bichromophoric derivative possessing a 1,1'-binaphthalene bridge was investigated by adopting two different methodologies, leading to the formation of aggregates with dissimilar morphologies. The chiral nature of the aggregated structures was optically probed with the help of circular dichroism (CD),(More)
The supramolecular helicity in the self-assembled nanostructures of two perylene bisimide bichromophoric systems could be controlled by varying the preparatory methods. The self-assembly of the compounds under different conditions was investigated in detail by using absorption, fluorescence, CD, FTIR, XRD, TEM, and SEM techniques. These studies reveal that(More)
