Self-assembly, dynamics, and phase transformation kinetics of donor-acceptor substituted perylene derivatives.

The role of alkyl chain substitution on the phase formation and core dynamics is studied in a series of diphenylamine functionalized perylenemonoimides (PMIs), by X-ray scattering, calorimetry and site-specific solid-state NMR techniques. In addition, the strong dipole associated with the donor-acceptor character of the molecules allow an investigation of… CONTINUE READING
