Autokondensation von Organoalkoxysilanen mit anschließendem Anionenaustausch ergibt supramolekulare, kern- und lösungsmittelfreie Organosiloxan-Nanofluide. Die hybride supramolekulare Flüssigkeit [C81H156NO3S(SiO[2>x>3/2])]y (siehe TEM-Bild; 200 nm Sehfeld) zeigt weiche, deformierbare Partikel und interpartikuläre Menisken.
