Carbon-Rich Nanostructures from Molecular Precursors

  • Tobias N. Hoheisel (a1), Ruth Szilluweit (a2), Stephen Schrettl (a2) and Holger Frauenrath (a2)


A synthesis for protected, glycosylated, amphiphilic oligo(ethynylene)s was developed. After their deprotection, two different glycosylated hexa(ethynylene)s were investigated for their self-assembly properties as well as their reactivity in aqueous solutions and at the air-water interface. Aggregation was observed in aqueous solution by UV spectroscopy, and the molecules formed films at the air-water interface.
