Preferred Abstract (Original): 
ugar-based amphiphiles functionalized with the butterfly-like tetrabenzo[a,c,g,i] fluorene undergo stronger π–π interactions with multi-walled carbon nanotubes than amphiphiles with pyrene tails. The resulting water soluble nanoglycoarrays with a multivalent sugar exposition on their surface engage in specific ligand–lectin interactions similar to glycoconjugates on a cell membrane.
