Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Simple cyclohexane-1,3,5-triamide derivatives are shown to form linear, rod-shaped structures in the solid state; a triple hydrogen-bonding interaction directs formation of the aggregate and leads to non-centrosysmmetric packing arrangement with modest non-linear optical properties.
