Strategies to create hierarchical self-assembled structures via cooperative non-covalent interactions

8 May, 2015 - 08:17

Chem. Soc. Rev., 2015, 44,2543-2572
DOI: 10.1039/C4CS00497C, Review ArticleChristina Rest, Ramesh Kandanelli, Gustavo Fernandez
Cooperative phenomena exhibit the basis for the hierarchical self-assembly of multiple systems in nature. Motivated by the high degree of order in these structures, a large number of supramolecular polymers have been designed whose aggregation follows a cooperative pathway. Herein, we have classified the supramolecular systems depending on the cooperative non-covalent forces driving their formation.

Cyclic oligo-para-phenylenes ("CPPs") possessing radial [small pi] systems have markedly different properties to the analogous linear oligo-para-phenylenes. Their synthesis is challenging due to the strain inherent in their structures, but several distinct strategies to access them have now been described. This review describes the synthesis, properties and applications of CPPs and related variants.
