Mechanical stiffening of porphyrin nanorings through supramolecular columnar stacking.

Abstract:

Solvent-induced aggregates of nanoring cyclic polymers may be transferred by electrospray deposition to a surface where they adsorb as three-dimensional columnar stacks. The observed stack height varies from single rings to four stacked rings with a layer spacing of 0.32 ± 0.04 nm as measured using scanning tunneling microscopy. The flexibility of the nanorings results in distortions from a circular shape, and we show, through a comparison with Monte Carlo simulations, that the bending stiffn...
