Graphical Abstract

Alcohol oxidation and self-assembly: the in situ oxidation of hydroxyl functional groups to quinone groups promotes the formation of enhanced hydrogen bonds and allows reorganization of the resulting supramolecular self-assemblies, which evolve from a weakly bound dense phase to a strongly bound nanoporous open structure (see picture).
