Abstract

We have demonstrated that one-dimensional supramolecular dye assemblies with a uniform diameter can be created by utilizing schizophyllan (SPG) as a one-dimensional host. In the supramolecular nanofibers, the dye molecules are assembled into the different aggregation modes depending on the preparation procedures. The findings establish that SPG is useful for creating the supramolecular nanofibers, where temporal superstructures can be stabilized by the SPG-specific helical higher-order structure.
