18_16b/2006Inside Front Cover: A Supramolecular Approach to Optically Anisotropic Materials: Photosensitive Ionic Self-Assembly Complexes (Adv. Mater. 16/2006)

Application of the supramolecular synthesis strategy ionic self-assembly for the facile production of low-molecular-weight photosensitive materials is presented on p. 2133 by Stumpe, Faul, and Zakrevskyy. The materials so synthesized possess good film-forming properties, are capable of undergoing light-induced generation of optical anisotropy, and possess dichroic ratios of approximately 50.
