Abstract

original image

Selbstassoziate der Titelverbindung 1 ändern sich von definierten Bändern über Vesikel zu Körben (siehe Bild) bei Verringerung der Konzentration in Tetrahydrofuran. Elektronenmikroskopie zeigte eine einzigartige selbstorganisierte Struktur: Körbe werden von gebogenen und eingewickelten nanometerdünnen Bändern gebildet. Die Selbstorganisation des π-konjugierten Moleküls 1 ermöglicht den Aufbau von Nano/Mikrostrukturen mit günstigen optoelektronischen Eigenschaften.
