From an idea to create a molecular assembly with unprecedented properties, Prussian blue, one of the porous metal complexes, has been successfully incorporated in inner space of one-dimensional molecular assemblies generated in low molecular-weight gels. Tetrasubstituted ferrocene having pyridyl groups at 1,1 ', 3,3' positions was designed to form self-assembled nanotube structure with silver (I) and ions, which has a uniform diameter of about 9 nm. Once Ferrocenes in the nanotube structure were oxidized to form ferrocenium ions by adding a suitable oxidizing agent, the ring structure was cut from the tubular structure and the reverse transformation was possible by the reduction of the ferrocenium ions in the ring structure.
