Morphology controllable hexaphenylsilole hierarchical homo-aggregations have been prepared by the self-assembly method in this paper. Tuning the solvent parameters can significantly affect the morphologies of the resulting HPS aggregations. The solvent properties play an important role in the shape-controlled synthesis of nanostructures. The possible self-assembly mechanism was also discussed. All of the different hierarchical structures aggregated from different solvents show different florescence and different absorption spectra properties, which could be of importance and have potential applications in the fields of optoelectronic functional materials.
