Abstract

original image

Mal lang, mal kurz: Ein bistabiler molekularer Muskel auf der Basis eines Janus-artigen „Doppel“-[2]Rotaxans ist das Ergebnis einer templatgesteuerten Selbstorganisation. Bei Änderung des pH-Werts gleiten die beiden identischen, zueinander passenden Komponenten mithilfe terminaler Kronenethereinheiten aneinander entlang, was ein Verlängern und Verkürzen des Moleküls zur Folge hat.
