Molecular dynamics simulations along with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) imaging demonstrate the formation of a novel type of nanorods, with a stable [permethrin(β-CD) 2] n structure in which the host:guest ratio is 2:1 and n=21-27 giving a length of ∼30.0-38.5 nm and an average diameter of ∼1.5 nm, self-assembled from an inclusion complex composed of permethrin and biocompatible β-cyclodextrin.
