Inside Cover: Cooperative Assembly of Binary Molecular Components into Tubular Structures for Multiple Photonic Applications (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 21/2011)
Cooperative self-assembly by hydrogen bonding between two luminescent molecular components generates binary microtubes with precisely controlled lengths. As H. B. Fu, J. N. Yao, and co-workers report in their Communication on page 4942 ff., the microtubes behave as annular microcavities that are capable of propagating photoluminescence along the length of the tube.
