49_42b/2010Inside Cover: Amphiphilic Self-Assembly of an n-Type Nanotube (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 42/2010)

A one-dimensional n-type semiconducting nanotube is formed by the self-assembly of a naphthalenetetracarboxylic acid diimide–lysine bolaamphiphile. In their Communication on page 7688 ff., J. R. Parquette and co-workers show how the nanotubes aggregate into a monolayer membrane that curves into rings, which then stack into tubes. Solid-state NMR studies show that there is exceptional conformational homogeneity among the constituent molecules that comprise the nanotubes, leading to efficient energy migration within the assemblies.
