Abstract

original image

Das Ein- und Ausfädeln zwischen einem Azobenzol-Amphiphil und einem α-Cyclodextrin (α-CD) kann genutzt werden, um photoresponsive vesikelartige Aggregate zu konstruieren, die sich reversibel bilden und auflösen (siehe Bild). Die Bewegung des α-CD auf der Alkylkette des Amphiphils entspricht der eines molekularen Shuttles.
