Development of Asymmetry Chemistry in Emissive Supramolecular Complexes Constructed by Noncovalent Interactions and Reversible Bond Formation


In nature, biomolecules constructed by noncovalent interactions and reversible bond formation show sophisticated molecular system that can not be achieved by artificial molecules. The understanding of self-assembly process in nature will lead us to obtain new types of supramolecular complexes that can show unusual structure, reactivity, and physical properties. This project aims at formations of new types of emissive supramolecular complexes via noncovalent interactions and reversible bond formation. Small structural differences in the components can be amplified through the self-assembly process, giving rise to form unusual self-assembled structures. This strategy will be promising to obtain asymmetrical supramolecular complexes and observe unusual physical properties derived from their asymmetric structures.
