Topochemical polymerization of phenylacetylene macrocycles: a new strategy for the preparation of organic nanorods.


PMID 23249259

Abstract

Soluble organic nanorods were prepared from phenylacetylene macrocycles using the topochemical polymerization of butadiyne moieties placed both inside and outside the macrocycles' skeletons. Macrocycles containing amide groups were self-assembled in a columnar fashion through the formation of an organogel in ethyl acetate. Upon irradiation with UV light, the Raman signals associated with butadiyne units completely vanished, indicating the creation of covalently linked nanorods.
