Abstract

We report a novel set of easily tailorable C-3 symmetric molecules with a pi-extended core and adorned with different thioalkyl groups, exhibiting solvatofluorochromic and amphoteric redox behaviour. The nearly planar core exhibits intermolecular face-to-face pi-stacking, S...S and intramolecular S...O interactions. Current-sensing atomic force microscopy studies revealed a high conductivity of similar to 0.15 mS cm(-1) in the undoped J-aggregate nanofibres of the thiopropyl appended gelator.
