A new double-stranded dinuclear helicate that displays conformational switching in response to temperature was prepared by self-assembly of an aromatic helical foldamer and dichloropalladium(ii). The relative populations of the two helicate conformers, syn-anti and syn-syn, were demonstrated to be reversibly modulated through temperature control.
