Supramolecular assemblies through host-guest complexation between cucurbiturils and an amphiphilic guest molecule

Supramolecular assemblies through host-guest complexation between cucurbiturils and an amphiphilic guest molecule

Chemical Communications 54(14): 1734-1737

We report the formation of supramolecular complexation between cucurbit[n]urils (CBn) and an amphiphilic pyridinium-functionalized anthracene (AnPy) in aqueous solution. The CB7 cavity is capable of accommodating the pyridinium moiety, while CB8 can encapsulate the pyridinium and anthracene moieties at once. The encapsulation of AnPy by CB7 leads to the formation of nanoparticles, while the complexation of AnPy with CB8 leads to the formation of nanorods.
