Abstract

The structures of two-dimensional azobenzene chromophore assemblies were finely tuned by molecular recognition in thymine-terminated azobenzene monolayers at the air-water interface. A large spectral shift of the azobenzene chromophore was found when the adenosine or nucleobase analogue was dissolved in the water subphase. Versatile combination of hydrogen bonding at the air-water interface can make fine tuning of chromophore orientation in the two-dimensional molecular assemblies.
