Ionoids: Macrocyclic, organic and small inorganic building blocks electrostatically self-assemble in solution. The formed nano-objects feature a mobile interior. The molecules inside the aggregates seem to rotate freely on certain spatial positions. The hydrodynamic radius of the nano-assemblies, however, is precisely defined.
