Abstract

Here we report the spontaneous formation of switchable sheets in aqueous solution, which is based on bent-shaped aromatic amphiphiles containing m-pyridine units at the terminals and a hydrophilic dendron at the apex. The aromatic segments self-assemble into flat sheets consisting of a zigzag conformation through π-π stacking interactions. Notably, the sheets reversibly transform into helical tubules at higher concentration and into discrete dimeric macrocycles at a lower concentration in response to Ag(I) ions through reversible coordination interactions between the pyridine units of the aromatic segments and the Ag(I) ions. While maintaining the coordination bonding interactions, the helical tubules reversibly transform into the dimeric macrocycles in response to the variation in concentration.
