Next-generation medical and consumer electrical devices require soft, flexible materials. Piezoelectric materials, capable of converting mechanical stress into electrical energy, are of interest across various fields. Chiral nanostructures, with inherent chirality, have emerged as potential piezoelectric materials. Peptide-based materials, known for self-assembly and stimuli responsiveness, hold promise for the utilization of chiral nanostructures. When combined with luminescent chromophores, peptides can generate aggregation-induced chiroptical effects like Circularly Polarized Luminescence (CPL) and Circular Dichroism (CD). In this study, a chiral organogel, L,L-1 is synthesized, and its self-assembly, mechanical properties, and chiroptical features are examined. The organogel exhibits thermo-reversible and thixotropic behavior, forming fibrillar networks and 2D-sheets upon cooling. CD spectroscopy reveals aggregation-induced chirality on pyrene chromophore, resulting in CPL with glum values of 3.0 (± 0.2) � 10�3 and 3.1 (± 0.2) � 10�3 for L,L-1 and D,D-1, respectively. Notably, the 2D-sheets exhibit an enhanced piezoelectric response (d33 �76.0 pm V�1) compared to the fibrillar network (d33 �64.1 pm V�1). Introducing an electron-deficient molecule into the solution forms a Charge-transfer (CT) complex, modulating the piezoelectric response to d33 �52.44 pm V�1. This study offers a promising approach to optoelectronics design, presenting a chiral system with both CPL and piezoelectric responses, opening new possibilities for innovative applications. © 2023 Wiley-VCH GmbH.
