Cover Picture: Transformation of a Spherical Supramolecular Dendrimer into a Pyramidal Columnar Supramolecular Dendrimer Mediated by the Fluorophobic Effect (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 36/2003)

42_36/2003The mode of the self-assembly of (3,4,5)2G2-CO2Me monodendrons changes from a spherical to a pyramidal supramolecular dendrimer upon replacement of the aliphatic chains by partially fluorinated chains. This metamorphosis was verified with a combination of small- and wide-angle X-ray diffraction, electron density calculations, and molecular modeling studies. For more information on this process, see the Communication by V. Percec et al. on page 4338 ff.
