Pendant-Type Helicene Oligomers with p-Phenylene Ethynylene Main Chains: Synthesis, Reversible Formation of Ladderlike Bimolecular Aggregates, and Control of Intramolecular and Intermolecular Aggregation.


Pendant-type (P)-helicene oligomers with p-phenylene ethynylene main chains up to a tetramer were synthesized by a building block method. The (P)-tetramer reversibly formed a ladderlike bimolecular aggregate upon cooling and disaggregated upon heating in (trifluoromethyl)benzene. Two bis(tetramer)s, in which two (P)-tetramers were connected by… (More)
