Abstract

Chiroptically active allenes are employed for the construction of surface-confined nanostructures. Morphological complementarity between the homochiral units leads to self-assembly of two highly-ordered, upstanding, diastereomeric architectures. The novel, intertwined self-assembled layer structures feature reactive terminal alkynes for further functionalization and carry potential for widespread applications exploiting chiroptical amplification.
