Abstract

The morphological transformation from microspheres to helical supramolecular nanofibers with controllable handedness is achieved by the introduction of molecular chirality based on amino acid derivatives (TDAP), and the chirality of the supramolecular architectures that are achieved is nullified through the coassembly of the equivalent TDAP enantiomers. The molecular detection of achiral melamine based on the R-TDAP-COOH supramolecular system is achieved by the appearance of helicity and inversion.
