Abstract

The templates of single and double helices of cadmium sulfide (CdS) from supramolecular ribbons, was investigated. The Dendron rodcoli (DRC) molecules have been developed to self assemble into a network of ribbons 10×2 mm in cross section and upto 10 μm in length, leading to the gelation of various organic solvents at a low concentrations. Supramolecular structures, analogously to covalent structures, can have conformations that in some vase may be controlled by subtle forces. The circular dichroism spectroscopy can provide a more complete understanding of DRC structure. It was observed that DRC ribbons can adopt different structures in different solvents, and there may be minor structural variations among ribbons in EMA. The results show that supramolecular templating is powerful approach to the nanoscale organization of inorganic crystals that enables nucleation growth, and organization in a single reaction by using structures with rationally designed functionality.
