Towering columns can be formed by macrocycles with rigid, unsaturated hydrocarbon backbones through π-stacking interactions. However, little is known about the correlation of the molecular structure of these macrocycles with supramolecular packing and phase behavior. In their Full Paper on page 51 ff., K. Müllen and co-workers investigate the long-range solid-state self-assembly of alkyl-substituted phenylene-based macrocycles and discover the factors affecting the formation of columnar superstructures.
