Spaghetti-Sensor: Ein Makrocyclus aus Pyromellitdiimid-Bausteinen geliert selektiv mit N,N-Dimethylanilin unter Bildung von Nanofasern. Nach dem Entfernen des N,N-Dimethylanilins verbleiben leere Kanäle aus gestapelten Molekülen des Makrocyclus, die als Wirt in einem Nanofaser-Chemosensor für π-Donoren dienen können.
