Abstract

A pretty pair: Self-assembly has been used to amplify and translate the structural information of amino acids into spectroscopic and morphological information (see scheme). It combines in situ premodification of various amino acids and their specific association with a cyanine dye. Conversion of the amino acids into their isoindole derivatives enhances the intermolecular interactions of the amino acid/dye pair to spontaneously form nanostructures. (Figure Presented).
