Abstract

Here we show that it is possible to modulate the supramolecular assembly of designed H-bonding amphiphilic perylene-based materials through simple solvent interactions. These modulated supramolecular interactions have been translated to and observed in macroscopic properties, and provide new pathways to the preparation of switchable interfaces based on designed supramolecular interactions.
