Abstract:Multichromophoric hydrogen-bonded assemblies 13⋅(BAR)6 are studied that bear a remarkably close resemblance to commelinin, a naturally occurring assembly responsible for an intense blue color of flowers. The incorporated chromophores exhibit a hypsochromic shift in the UV/visible (Vis) absorption maximum (Δ λmax = 14 nm) compared with the free chromophores. In addition, the chiroptical properties of incorporated chromophores can be rationally controlled by changing the supramolecular chirality of the assembly. These properties have been used to study the stability of this type of assembly with UV and CD spectroscopy at concentrations far below the NMR sensitivity threshold (10−4 M). The determined C50% values of 2–3 μM in benzene show the extremely high stability of these hydrogen-bonded assemblies.
