Abstract

original image

Molecular recognition occurs at dynamic interfaces too! The cover shows a donor–acceptor–donor hydrogen-bond moiety, incorporated in a tailor-made monovalent molecular module (in blue), that is able to recognize both complementary monovalent (in red) and tetravalent (in green) molecular modules at interfaces. This finding, described by P. Samori and co-workers on page 1207, paves the way towards the formation of robust multicomponent 2D functional nanostructures with tunable size and geometries.
