Abstract

original image

Template polymerization of liquid crystalline salts affords a new type of chiral covalent framework, which can dynamically switch their nanoscaled structural order in response to the desorption and adsorption of chiral guest molecules. For more information see the Full Paper by Y. Ishida et al. on page 14752 ff.
