A molecular-sized tunnel-porous crystal with a ratchet gear structure and its one-way guest-molecule transportation property

Abstract

An anisotropic tunnel microporous crystal was prepared. Active transportation of anthracene as a guest molecule in the anisotropic tunnels was observed. The direction of anthracene movement implies that the anisotropic tunnel did not work as a flap-check valve. The direction of the movement was consistent with that caused by a Brownian ratchet.
