Micropattered thin films of tailorable molecular materials with uniform, nanoscale cavities, such as 1, were prepared by soft lithographic methods. In this form the materials readily diffract visible light, and because the efficiency of diffraction is enhanced by sorption of guest molecules, the diffraction response can be used for signal transduction in chemical-sensing applications.
