Abstract

original image

Verschieden und dennoch kompatibel: Die Bildung von Wasserstoffbrücken zwischen zwei verschiedenen Einheiten, die sich jeweils zu homodimeren Kapseln zusammenfinden können, bewirkt die Selbstorganisation zu einer Hybridkapsel, wenn ein zum entstehenden Innenraum passender Gast vorliegt. Die Bildung der molekularen Kapsel (siehe Bild) wird durch 1H-NMR-spektroskopische Experimente gestützt.
