Hybrid Microstructures: One-Dimensional Microwires Formed by the Co-Assembly of Complementary Aromatic Donors and Acceptors (Adv. Funct. Mater. 11/2009)
A complementary donor-acceptor pair of truxene derivatives, Tr3 and its oxidized counterpart TrO3, are presented by Pei et al. on page 1746, and used to build a foundation for the investigation of aromatic donor–acceptor interaction. Two-component one-dimensional microstructures are realized by a simple solution process reliant on this interaction. Such a hybrid material opens new possibilities in the future design of multicomponent organic nano- and microstructures.
