The synthesis of a "chelator-type" adenine mimic, which has two metal binding sites, and its ZnII-assisted self-assembly into a single-stranded coordination polymer are described. The UV absorption changes of a 1 : 1 mixture of the ZnII complex and a single-stranded DNA oligomer (dT)70 showed the temperature-dependent hyperchromic effect in an analogous manner as thermal denaturation processes of natural DNA duplexes.
