Abstract

Die Basenstärke entscheidet: Die Bildung eines Charge-Transfer-Komplexes wird durch eine Kombination aus Coulomb-Anziehung und Charge-Transfer-Wechselwirkungen bestimmt. Der Charge-Transfer-Komplex, der aus einem supramolekularen Amphiphil erhalten wurde (siehe Bild), ist wasserlöslich und bildet ultralange Nanofasern, deren Geradheit über den pH-Wert der Lösung eingestellt werden kann.
