Abstract

original image

It's all in the packing: Self-assembly of the title system through hydrogen bonding and then aggregation led to vesicle formation, and capping of the hydrogen-bonding moieties with subsequent aggregation led to ribbons. The resulting self-assembled architectures exhibit distinct optical and electronic properties.
