Abstract

Spaghetti sensor: A pyromellitic diimide based macrocycle selectively gelates N,N-dimethylaniline to form a nanofibril structure. Removal of N,N-dimethylaniline forms channel type empty cavities constructed from stacked molecules of the macrocycle in the nanofiber. By taking advantage of host ability of 1, the nanofibers can serve as a chemosensor for the π-donating compounds.
