Cucurbit[8]uril-based supramolecular polymers: promoting supramolecular polymerization by metal-coordination

Author affiliations

Abstract

Linear supramolecular polymers were obtained in aqueous solution by employing cucurbit[8]uril-based host–guest interaction as the driving force. Water-soluble monomers were prepared through direct metal-coordination. The rigid and bulky terpyridine–Fe linker can effectively enhance the monomer's solubility and suppress its cyclization, thereby promoting supramolecular polymerization.
