dc.description.abstractIn this article, we demonstrate encapsulation of octakis(hexylthio) zinc phthalocyanine molecules by non-covalent supramolecular organization within self-assembled peptide nanofibers. Peptide nanofibers containing octakis(hexylthio) zinc phthalocyanine molecules were obtained via a straight-forward one-step self-assembly process under aqueous conditions. Nanofiber formation results in the encapsulation and organization of the phthalocyanine molecules, promoting ultrafast intermolecular energy transfer. The morphological, mechanical, spectroscopic and non-linear optical properties of phthalocyanine containing peptide nanofibers were characterized by TEM, SEM, oscillatory rheology, UV-Vis, fluorescence, ultrafast pump-probe and circular dichroism spectroscopy techniques. The ultrafast pump-probe experiments of octakis(hexylthio) zinc phthalocyanine molecules indicated pH controlled non-linear optical characteristics of the encapsulated molecules within self-assembled peptide nanofibers. This method can provide a versatile approach for bottom-up fabrication of supramolecular organic electronic devices. © 2012 The Royal Society of Chemistry.en_US
