Abstract

The effect of DNA on the morphology of supramolecular polymers assembled from chimeric DNA-pyrene oligophosphodiesters in water is described. The number of deoxynucleotides determines if the self-assembly yields 1D or 2D structures. A single guanosine nucleotide attached to a heptapyrenotide induces chiroptical activity in self-assembled nanosheets.
