Abstract

(Figure Presented) All line up together! A new concept for the alignment and assembly of conjugated polymers through the action of supramolecular bundling ("aligner") molecules is inspired by actin-filament bundling proteins. The approach provides a general means of preparing complex, ordered assemblies of conjugated polymers.
