A supramolecular system of a perylene derivative containing bis(2,6-diacylaminopyridine) units and a perylene bisimide bound by three hydrogen-bonding interactions was synthesized and characterized. SEM images indicated that the supramolecular system can form fibrous nanostructures (see picture) with diameters in the range of 40–100 nm and lengths of several micrometers. Films of the supramolecular system were shown to produce a photocurrent response.
