Cover Picture: Highly Ordered Merocyanine Dye Assemblies by Supramolecular Polymerization and Hierarchical Self-Organization (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 28/2003)

42_28/2003Hierarchical self-organization of bis(merocyanins), as shown in the cover picture, lead in the first step to helical polymers (top), which come together to form rod-type aggregates in methylcyclohexane (middle right). These arrange finally at higher concentrations into a hexagonal dense packing (bottom). As F. Würthner et al. describe in their Communication on page 3247 ff., gels and liquid-crystalline films can be generated in this way with unusual textures, as shown in the background.
