Self-assembly and disassembly behavior of a series of chiral sorbitol-based derivatives in n-octanol were investigated by using the variable temperature circular dichroism (CD) technique. An attempt has been made to establish a novel strategy for the characterization of the self-assembly/disassembly transition by measuring the difference of CD signals of chiral aggregates.
