Time-dependent amplification of helical bias in self-assembled dye nanorods directed by the sergeants-and-soldiers principle.


A pronounced sergeants-and-soldiers directed chiral amplification is observed for the self-assembly of merocyanine dye nanorods and the amplification process is shown to become slower for decreasing fraction of sergeant molecules.
