A double-chain ammonium amphiphile with the p-nitroaniline moiety formed ordered bilayer assemblies in ethanol media. p-Toluenesulfonate counterion effectively stabilized the bilayer. Excitonic interaction among highly oriented chromophores at the bilayer surface was probed by absorption and circular dichroism spectra.
