Evolution from lyotropic liquid crystal to helical fibrous organogel of an achiral fluorescent twin-tapered bi-1,3,4-oxadiazole derivative.


We report an unprecedented hierarchical self-assembly of an achiral twin-tapered bi-1,3,4-oxadiazole derivative (2,2-bis(3,4,5-trioctanoxyphenyl)-bi-1,3,4-oxadiazole, BOXD-T8). This molecule can form a layer-structured lyotropic liquid crystal and further forms a helical fibrous organogel in DMF at concentrations above 0.6 wt %. The self-assembly process of… (More)
