Perylene paper published!

A new study on chiral self-assembled sugar-substituted perylenes with Zhixiang Wei’s group was accepted and published online in Advanced Functional Materials today!

It was shown that supramolecular structures and helicity of this new perylene derivative can be tuned by kinetic and thermodynamic factors. Demonstration devices for hydrazine sensing based on single nanoribbons exhibit better performance than nanofiber bundles and other achiral nanostructure devices. This provides a pathway to tuning the structures and helicity as well as the possibility to construct high-performance nanodevices.
