Abstract: We present a bioinspired design strategy to effectively tailor the assembly of naphthalenediimides (NDIs) into a wide variety of architectures by functionalizing with amino acid derivatives. This bioinspired process of custom designing and engineering molecular assemblies is termed "bioinspired architectonics". By employing minute structural mutations in the form of alpha-substituents of amino acids, we successfully engineered molecular assembly of NDIs into zero dimensional (OD, spheres), one-dimensional (ID, fibers), and two-dimensional (2D, sheets) architectures. The 2D sheets of phenylalanine methylester appended NDI I showed remarkable bulk electron mobility of up to 1 cm(2) V(-1)s(-1). With the aid of photophysical, diffraction, and microscopy techniques we rationalize the effect of molecular structure with their ordering and electronic properties in an effort to find structure property correlations via a bioinspired modular approach.
