Chirality Organization of Aniline Oligomers through Hydrogen Bonds of Amino Acid Moieties

Aniline oligomers bearing amino acid moieties were designed by the introduction of l/d-Ala-OMe into aniline oligomers to induce chirality organization of the π-conjugated aniline oligomer moieties, wherein the formation of intramolecular hydrogen bonds was demonstrated to play an important role to regulate the aniline oligomer moieties conformationally.
