        Description    

          The self-aggregation behavior of a series of photoresponsive       bolaamphiphiles consisting of
          a central azobenzene moiety linked to terminal sugar groups       via oligomethylene spacers in
          water/DMSO mixed solvents are reported. Changes in the       absorption spectra in these
          solvent mixtures indicated the formation of tightly packed       H-aggregates. The ease of
          formation and the stability of the aggregates were observed       to increase with increase in the
          length of the oligomethylene spacers. Microscopic studies       indicated the formation of ...
