Nonamphiphilic, hydrogen-bonded hydrazide foldamers appended with four or six long flexible chains were revealed to spontaneously assemble to form vesicles in methanol and organogels in aliphatic hydrocarbons. SEM, AFM, TEM, DLS, and fluorescence microscopy were all used to identify the structures of the vesicles. It was proposed that intermolecular pi… CONTINUE READING
