Abstract

Unlikely bedfellows: Naphthalenediimide‐based supramolecular nanotubes act as size‐selective receptors for ion pairs, as demonstrated by competition experiments with C60 (see picture). Fullerene forms mixed complexes inside the cavity of the nanotubes in the presence of the anion and ammonium ions of the appropriate size
