Abstract

Large area uniform nanofibers have been fabricated from a hexameric arylene–ethynylene macrocycle (1) through in situ self-assembly on a glass substrate during solvent evaporation. The fibril morphology is controlled by the solvophilic core of 1, in conjunction with the interfacial interactions between the side chains of 1 and the substrate.
