The formamidoxime configurational Z isomer coupled with the pyridylbiscarboxamide conformational codon were used to fold planar, curved structures. When embedded into macrocycles, this folded motif promotes dimerization through π-π stacking and hydrogen-bonding and the formation of tubules akin to molecular channels in the solid state.
