Figure Persented: With the use of a single building block, two nanoporous patterns with nearly equal packing density can be formed upon self-assembly at a liquid-solid interface. Moreover, the formation of both of these porous networks can be selectively and homogenously induced by changing external parameters like solvent, concentration, and temperature. Finally, their porous properties are exploited to host up to three different guest molecules in a spatially resolved way.
