D.B. and S.H. conceived the idea and designed the experiments. D.B. synthesized the molecules and carried out optical spectroscopy; R.T. and M.M. designed and performed LS measurements, T.L. and J.P.R. designed and performed the SFM measurements. D.B. and S.H. wrote the paper. D.B., S.H., J.P.R., and M.M. discussed the results and commented on the manuscript. Generous support by the German Research Foundation (DFG) through SFB 658, subprojects A3 and B8 is gratefully acknowledged. Wacker Chemie AG, BASF AG, Bayer Industry Services, and Sasol Germany are thanked for generous donations of chemicals.
