Abstract: A major challenging task in supramolecular chemistry is the design of simple molecular components that are capable of organizing into controlled molecular assembly, the essence of which is self-assembly through various types of intermolecular interactions. Along this line, we have explored small rigid-flexible block molecules to create novel self-assembling systems, including controlled self-assembled structures, switchable aggregates, and biocompatible dynamic structures (Figure). Here I will present some of related achievements in our recent study.
