Photo-responsive self-assemblies based on bio-inspired bolaamphiphiles with oligo (ethylene oxide) hydrophilic outer segments and a hydrophobic inner segment with thymine were investigated. The morphology of the self-assemblies transformed from ribbon-like structures to spherical structures in water by UV irradiation which was investigated by 1HNMR, 13CNMR, DLS and TEM.
