A molecular dilemma! The assigning of mechanisms of supramolecular polymerization based on molecular features is presented. It is conjectured that long-range interactions along the growth direction result in a cooperative mechanism and a lack thereof in an isodesmic pathway (see picture). The former can arise from intermolecular hydrogen bonding along the stack direction.
