Tosi, F., Stuart, M. C. A., Smit, H., Chen, J. & Feringa, B. L., 10-Sep-2019, In : Langmuir. 35, 36, p. 1821-11828 10 p.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review

The synthesis and self-assembly behavior of newly designed BINOL-based amphiphiles is presented. With minor structural modifications, the aggregation of these amphiphiles could be successfully tuned to form different types of assemblies in water, ranging from vesicles to cubic structures. Simple sonication induced rearrangement of different kinetically stable aggregates into thermodynamically stable self-assembled nanotubes as observed by Cryo-TEM.
