Tuning surface wettability through photocontrolled reversible molecular shuttle

Author affiliations

Abstract

A photocontrolled molecular shuttle SAM based on an α-cyclodextrin (α-CD)/azobenzene inclusion complex on rough gold surfaces is fabricated, which can reversibly switch the surface wettability by transferring external energy (light) to molecular mechanical motion.
