48_09/2009Cover Picture: Solid-State Scrolls from Hierarchical Self-Assembly of T-Shaped Rod–Coil Molecules (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 9/2009)

Solid scrolls are reversibly formed by self-assembly of rod-shaped molecules with laterally attached coil units, in contrast to the layered structures formed from self-assembly of planar molecules. As described by M. Lee and co-workers in their Communication on page 1664 ff., the core structure of the scrolls, which are either filled cylinders or hollow tubes, can be controlled by variation of the length of the coil unit. The cover picture shows aligned tubular scrolls displaying well-defined in-plane ordering of the rod segments.
