The self-aggregation behavior of a series of photoresponsive bolaamphiphiles consisting of a central azobenzene moiety linked to terminal sugar groups via oligomethylene spacers in water/DMSO mixed solvents are reported. Changes in the absorption spectra in these solvent mixtures indicated the formation of tightly packed H-aggregates. The ease of formation and the stability of the aggregates were...
