|Abstract:||Part II. Discrete aggregates with a size in the nano-scale were formed by the hydrogen-bond mediated self-assembly of dendritic macromolecules. Several hydrogen bonding units were investigated, including anthyridine and diaminodihydropyridine moieties that are complementary (AAA-DDD), and self-complementary isophthalic acid, and 6-aminonicotinic acid subunits. Among them, dendritic tetraacids 189a-d were shown to self-assemble in a generation-dependent manner. The lower generation tetraacid 189a prefers to form a series of linear aggregates, while the higher generation tetraacids 189b-d tend to form a cyclic hexamer. The observation was supported by SEC dilution studies, VPO, and comparison with covalent models 208a-c.|
