    A dual-coded dynamic material was created by the bimodal self-assembly protocol sketched in the scheme. The combination of two orthogonal and reversible interactions, namely solvophobic aggregation (SA) and metal coordination (MC), allows precise control at each step of the self-assembly cycle, leading to the formation of rodlike supramolecular architectures.
