Linear Self - Assembled Systems and the Effect of Capping Defects


Molecularself-assemblyplaysan important role inmany systems, ranging from zeolites1 to biological systems2-4 andmodified surfaces.5 Ofparticular interest are systems that assemble into single-molecule thick fibers that may be millimetres in extent. Such linear self-assembled supramolecular structureshave technological importance in the areas of molecular… (More)
