π-Stapelung mit Pfiff: Ein 2:1-π-Komplex aus 1,4-Bis(phenylethinyl)benzol und seinem perfluorierten Analogon zeigt als erster Komplex dieser Art eine von 1:1 abweichende Stöchiometrie. Die Stapelgeometrie des Systems (siehe Bild; H rot, F grün) ist ebenso ungewöhnlich wie sein komplexer Mesomorphismus.
