Supramolecular assembly of 1D platinum complexes and synthetic amphiphiles is described here as a strategy for producing inorganic nanowires in solution. It is demonstrated that the electronic states of the complex can be tuned either by the use of suitably designed amphiphiles or by varying the metal species incorporated. The Figure shows the reversible self-assembly of the molecular wires.
