The present thesis focuses on conjugation of oligothiophenes with complementary nucleosides in order to induce self-assembly of oligothiophenes by exploiting principles utilized in nature. Driven by complementary base-recognition via hydrogen bonding, the synthesized conjugates should assemble into well-ordered suprastructures. Additionally, a multifaceted interplay of other competing intermolecular forces, such as van der Waals attractions or pi-pi stacking, further contributes to their molecular arrangement. Base-recognition and the related impact on self-assembling properties of these new systems will be investigated in solution as well as in solid state.
