Stimuli-responsive supramolecular polymeric materials.
This critical review of recent developments in supramolecular polymeric materials is addressed, which can respond to appropriate external stimuli at the fundamental level due to the existence of noncovalent interactions of the building blocks. Expand
Supramolecular polymers constructed by crown ether-based molecular recognition.
This tutorial review classify supramolecular polymers based on their differences in topology and cover recent advances in the marriage between crown ether-based molecular recognition and polymer science. Expand
Self-healing supramolecular gels formed by crown ether based host-guest interactions.
Two supramolecular gels are stimuli-responsive materials that respond to changes of the pH value and are also self-healing materials, as can be seen by eye and as evidenced by rheological data. Expand
Supramolecular polymers constructed from macrocycle-based host-guest molecular recognition motifs.
The introduction of reversible host-guest interactions can further endow these supramolecular polymers with interesting and fascinating chemical/physical properties, including stimuli responsiveness, self-healing, and environmental adaptation. Expand
Enzyme-responsive pillar[5]arene-based polymer-substituted amphiphiles: synthesis, self-assembly in water, and application in controlled drug release.
An enzyme-responsive drug delivery system was constructed from a pillar[5]arene-based polyethyleneglycol-substituted amphiphile which self-assembles into micelles in water. These micelles exhibitExpand
Complexation between pillar[5]arenes and a secondary ammonium salt.
We demonstrate that n-octylethyl ammonium hexafluorophosphate (G) can thread through the cavity of 1,4-dimethoxypillar[5]arene to form a [2]pseudorotaxane with a binding constant of 1.09 (±0.31) ×Expand
Preparation of two new [2]rotaxanes based on the pillar[5]arene/alkane recognition motif
Abstract Based on the pillar[5]arene/alkane recognition motif, two [2]rotaxanes were successfully prepared. Their formation was confirmed by NMR spectroscopy and ESI mass spectrometry. We alsoExpand
Pillar[6]arene-based photoresponsive host-guest complexation.
This new pillar[6]arene-based photoresponsive host-guest recognition motif can work in organic solvents and is a good supplement to the existing widely used cyclodextrin/azobenzene recognition motif. Expand
Metal coordination mediated reversible conversion between linear and cross-linked supramolecular polymers.
The topology of a polymer has a significant influence on its properties and functions, both in bulk and in solution. Therefore, the discovery of efficient methods to control polymer topology is veryExpand
