Abstract

Space capsules: Self-organized molecular capsules based on six C-alkylpyrogallol[4]arene cavitand type molecules, held together by hydrogen bonds, can be disassembled by shearing in liquids on a rapidly rotating disk. Rapid uptake of hydrogen in the thin film on the disk is possible, which can be entrapped in the molecular capsules as they reassemble to the parent state (hexamer) in bulk solution
