Supramolecular Self-Assembly of Histidine-Capped-Dialkoxy-Anthracene: A Visible-Light-Triggered Platform for Facile siRNA Delivery.

Supramolecular self-assembly of histidine-capped-dialkoxy-anthracene (HDA) results in the formation of light-responsive nanostructures. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of HDA shows two types of hydrogen bonding. The first hydrogen bond is established between the imidazole moieties while the second involves the oxygen atom of one amide group and… CONTINUE READING
