Abstract

original image

Die gemeinsame Assemblierung von sphärischen Kolloiden und Mikroröhren bestehend aus Tensiden und Cyclodextrinen führte zu dynamischen Kolloid-in-Röhre-Strukturen, darunter Helices. In-situ-Beobachtungen dieser Strukturen, u. a. ihres thermoreversiblen Auf- und Abbau, demonstrieren das Zusammenspiel von molekularer und kolloidaler Selbstassoziation und zeigen den Weg für eine temperatursensitive Partikelanordnung und -freisetzung auf.
