UV-irradiation of aqueous suspensions of amino acid-derived amphiphilic diacetylene supramolecules promotes a process that involves initial formation of species that absorb at 640 nm followed by the generation of polymers that have longer wavelength (686 nm) absorbance. The initially formed intermediate polydiacetylenes display substantial colorimetric reversibility while the long wavelength absorbing polymers show irreversible thermochromism during heating and cooling cycles. The long wavelength absorbing polydiacetylenes, formed from amino acid-derived amphiphilic diacetylene supramolecules, are suggested to have more planer backbone structures that allow more efficient overlap of the conjugated p-orbitals.
