Abstract

original image

Gel it like it is: Fullerene nanorods (see figure) with a length of several micrometers, can be easily synthesized by a supramolecular gel-assisted self-assembly method (SGAS). The results presented here may be useful for the design and construction of new organic nanomaterials by SGAS.
