We here report a preliminary step toward alignment and organization of conjugated polymers by an Aligner molecule with an allosteric function. Aligner molecules 1 and 2, which show positive homotropic allosterism, can bind a guest poly(phenylene-ethynylene) bearing bis(methylaminomethyl)benzene moieties (P1) in their porphinatozinc clefts to organize assemblies of P1. The binding studies were conducted by UV-Vis, fluorescent spectroscopy, AFM and TEM.
