Pendant-type (P)-helicene oligomers with p-phenylene ethynylene main chains up to a tetramer were synthesized by a building block method. The (P)-tetramer reversibly formed a ladderlike bimolecular aggregate upon cooling and disaggregated upon heating in (trifluoromethyl)benzene. Two bis(tetramer)s, in which two (P)-tetramers were connected by hexadecamethylene linkers, were also synthesized. The head-to-tail bis(tetramer) formed an intramolecular aggregate, and the head-to-head bis(tetramer) formed an intermolecular aggregate in toluene. The results suggest the antiparallel aggregation structure of the pendant-type (P)-tetramers. The structure of the linker was proven to be effective in controlling intramolecular and intermolecular aggregations.
