In this study, charming luminescent nanostructures have been obtained from two components between amino acids functionalized naphthalene derivative (IN) and bases (Adenine (A), Thymine (T), Guanine (G) and Uracil (U)) units via co-assembly. These fluorescent nanotubes, walnut-like structures, nanofibers and sponge-like structures have been investigated by means of Ultraviolet Spectra (UV), Fluorescence Spectra and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The results illustrated that these nanostructures were of strong fluorescence and the drive forces were the intermolecular hydrogen bonding and π-π stacking interactions.
