Light-induced self-assembly leads to the folding of synthetic random-coil polymers into highly stable single-chain polymeric chiral nanoparticles (see picture; green: side chains, blue: phenyl rings, red: nitrophenyl leaving groups). The folding of the polymer was aided by heating and cooling steps.
