The formation of asymmetric bis-complexes, based on terpyridine ligands and ruthenium ions, is described as a powerful tool for the self-assembly of polymer blocks end-functionalized with terpyridine units. This is illustrated in this contribution for the synthesis of amphiphilic metallo-supramolecular block copolymers, which are further used to produce aqueous micelles. Finally, the reversibility of the supramolecular bond opens new avenues for the preparation and manipulation of these nano-objects. [on SciFinder (R)]
