The reverse amidohelicene (P)-tetramer containing (P)-helicenediamine and m-phenylenedicarboxylate was synthesized. The circular dichroism (CD) and vapor pressure osmometry (VPO) analysis revealed the dimeric aggregate formation in THF. It is notable that the reverse amide tetramer formed a duplex, as well as the original amidohelicene oligomers. In various solutions, mixtures of the reverse (P)-tetramer and amidohelicene (P)/(M)-tetramer formed homoaggregates instead of heteroaggregates.
