Supramolecular Programming toward Functional Organic Materials


Exploration of a general principle to control the morphology and electronic state of conjugated molecule- and polymer-based assemblies has been an important research target in materials chemistry. Especially control and modulation of molecular interactions in self-assembling process still remains a great challenge. In this presentation, we report three-dimensionally designed π-conjugated molecules and polymers for the controlled alignment or segregation.  In addition, I introduce  a series of molecular machinery system whose function, properties, and morphologies can be controlled.<./p>
