Feedback form is now closed.
A fundamental goal of supramolecular chemistry is the control of forces between groups of molecules in the formation of nanostructures. These structures often are not strong enough to resist changes in environmental factors and chemical attack. In this research, a cyanine dye monomer known for its ability to form metastable nanotubes will be modified to create a monomer capable of creating a polymerized diacetylene backbone to form a stronger nanostructure. The synthetic procedure has been planned in such a manner as to prioritize safety and to minimize cost. Progress has been achieved in conducting this synthesis and will be presented.
