Abstract

The first artificial double helix composed of achiral synthetic polymers have been constructed by twisting of a supramolecular ladders from poly(trimethylene imine) salts and porphyrin-bridged BisPYBOXs through hydrogen bonds between the PYBOX groups and secondary ammonium cations in the polymer.
