We report the pH-driven formation of a dynamic 2-D porous heterostructure through assembly-disassembly switching of the stacked macrocycles of nanotubules and their subsequent spreading on the surfaces of a self-sorted sheet assembly in a hierarchical co-assembly. The 2-D ordered porous heterostructure is able to discriminate spherical C60 from flat coronene through shape selective adsorption.
