Supramolecular disassembly: Phototriggered release of noncovalently sequestered lipophilic guest molecules from dendritic supramolecular assemblies has been demonstrated. Facially amphiphilic dendrimers have been shown to provide a unique opportunity to fine-tune the release kinetics of the guest molecules in response to light (see picture).
