Detailed studies on water-binding aquafoldamers are presented that illustrate the potential use of the elongated larger aquafoldamers for recognizing larger water clusters of diverse topologies. A novel self-trapping dimerization mode involving two tetramer molecules is proposed, which is consistent with the obtained varying experimental evidences.
