AbstractA new self-assembling tricyclic module ( K1) featuring the Watson-Crick H-bonding arrays of guanine and cytosine fused to an internal pyridine ring was synthesized. When dissolved in water at room temperature, this module rapidly self-assembles into hexameric rosettes, which then stack to form J-type rosette nanotubes (RNTs) with increased inner/outer diameters and the largest molar ellipticity ever reported (4 106 deg M-1 m-1). Using a combination of imaging and spectroscopic techniques we established the structure of K1-RNT and have shown that the extended system of the self-assembling module resulted in a new family of J-type RNTs with enhanced intermodular electronic communication.
