Abstract

The precise structural control is known for self-assembly into closed spherical structures (e.g., micelles), but similar control of open structures is much more challenging. Inspired by natural tobacco mosaic virus, we present the use of a rigid-rod template to control the size of a one-dimensional self-assembly. We believe that this strategy is novel for organic self-assembly and should provide a general approach to controlling size and dimension.
