Abstract

(Figure Presented) Straight curls: Conjugated polymers are aligned through the use of twining porphyrin oligomers (twimers), which act as helical "hosts" that twine around and are included within a single conjugated polymer. The resulting composites aggregate into relatively large 2D structures in the solid state and exhibit well-oriented periodic striping.
