The design of synthetic molecules with self-organized behavior is one of the fastest growing areas of research today. It has the potential to afford supramolecular architectures (structures beyond the molecule) with specific chemical and physical properties with useful applications in emerging technologies and medicine. Herein we will present the results from our investigation of multinuclear metal complexes that comprise several long alkyl groups and generate a novel set of amphiphilic metallosurfactants that self-assemble into hierarchical nanoscale supramolecular structures in water.
