Supramolecular chemistry is continually being explored, applied and expanded in many countries all over

This study has demonstrated the importance of the self-assembly between surfactants structures

properties of five amphiphilic molecules are discussed. These molecules were investigated in the gaseous

demonstrating that the anionic monomers have a propensity to self-associate into a variety of aggregated

A selection of 1H and DOSY NMR experiments were conducted in DMSO-d6, providing evidence

hydrogen bonding was further confirmed by 1H NMR self-association studies, showing a down field

binding model showed that the dimerization constant increases in line with the increase of aromatic

through intermolecular hydrogen bonds to form aggregated species of either irregular or spherical shape

and dimerization constants correlated well with the computationally derived Emax and Emin values, giving

modelling methods. This innovative, cohesive branch of supramolecular chemistry will revolutionise the

study and scope of non-covalent interactions beyond the molecule.
