Holder, S.J. and Elemans, J. and Donners, J. and Boerakker, M.J. and de Gelder, R. and Barbera, J. and Rowan, A.E. and Nolte, R.J.M. (2001) Lamellar organic thin films through self-assembly and molecular recognition. Journal of Organic Chemistry, 66 (2). pp. 391-399. ISSN 0022-3263.
Molecular clips possessing U-shaped cavities have been functionalized on their convex side with long aliphatic tails. These molecules form dimers which self-assemble into malleable lamellar thin films. Upon addition of a guest (methyl 3,5-dihydroxybenzoate), a 1:1 host-guest complex is formed, which prohibits clip dimerization. As a result, the lamellar structure of the material is lost. Complexation of 3,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid in the clip results in host-guest complexes which dimerize by hydrogen bonding interactions between the carboxylic acid functions of the bound guests. This dimerization restores the lamellar type architecture of the material.
