Supramolecular solids are an ideal medium for time-resolved diffraction studies at atomic resolution as they allow dilution of the active species, and the study of a species in different states of aggregation and different environments, but attention must be paid to excited-state quenching due to energy transfer. Crystallinity must be preserved up to reasonable product concentrations if chemical reactions are to be monitored at the atomic level.
