Abstract

Silver complexes of resorcinarene bis-crown-5 were observed to arrange into nanorods of 2.4 nm in diameter. The left-and right-handed isomers of the inherently chiral resorcinarene host are separated into their own entity in the self-assembly process with the periphery of the nanorods consisting of silver cations included in the cavity.
