Abstract

The supramolecular dimerization of tetraanionic corannulene is utilized as a self-assembly motif for the construction of highly charged, buckybowl-based supramolecular oligomers. Oligomers of up to 7 units (3900 g mol-1) of reduced dicorannulenic monomers are identified and characterized by various NMR techniques, and the reversibility of their assembly is established through the concentration dependence of their molecular weight and the effect of monofunctional chain-stoppers.
