The preparation of hybrid materials from supramolecular polymers through the sol-gel process is presented. Supramolecular polymers are assembled from phosphodiester-linked pyrene oligomers and act as water-soluble one- or two-dimensional templates for silicification. The fibrillary and planar morphologies of the assemblies, as well as the excitonic interactions between the chromophores, remain unaffected by the silicification process.
