Supramolecular chiral insulated molecular wire was constructed by self-assembly of a neutral one-dimensional schizophyllan host and a water-soluble polythiophene guest. The work presented here will not only open a door to a new application of polysaccharides but also provide an important clue to prepare stable supramolecular insulated molecular wires with one-handed helical structure.
