Self-organized spiral columns in laterally grafted rods.


Attachment of a flexible coil on the mid-part of a rigid rod block generates T-shaped rod-coil block molecules that self-assemble into a stepped column. These layers, in turn, self-curve into a spiral column with tunable core structure in the solid state.
