By careful design of the dendritic mol. the phys. properties of the self-assembled structure can be tuned in such a way that phototriggered micromanipulation and merging of hard spheres is possible. This possibility leads to the bottom-up synthesis of micrometer-sized objects through a combination of covalent synthesis and supramol. organization followed by micromanipulation.
