This paper presents a facile method for fabricating a thin-film sample with a high asymmetry value of induced circularly polarized luminescence (iCPL) (|glum| = 2.0 × 10-3). The method involves mixing stereoregular poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and chiral chromophore (2,2,2-trifluoro-1-(9-anthryl)ethanol (TFAE)) to form a complex with a dynamic helical conformation of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) associated with TFAE via hydrogen bonding. This dynamic helical conformation can be stabilized by the stereocomplexation of a pair of stereoregular PMMA, where the TFAE is sandwiched between a double-helix isotactic PMMA and single-helix syndiotactic PMMA, resulting in a preferential one-handed helical conformation with a high value of iCPL from self-assembly.
