Spontaneous and catalytic fusion of supramolecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

Using principles of completive and integrative self-sorting, a clean supramolecule-to-supramolecule transformation is realised that involves fusion of a 3-component rectangle and a 2-component equilateral triangle into a 5-component scalene triangle. While the spontaneous process takes 15 h at 25 °C, the catalytic transformation is completed within 1 h.
