Size-tunable supramolecular nanoparticles mediated by ternary cucurbit[8]uril host–guest interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

The formation of size-tunable, supramolecular nanoparticles (SNPs), employing cucurbit[8]uril-assisted naphthol–viologen charge-transfer complexes, is strongly time and temperature dependent. Yet, the ternary complex formation is fast at all temperatures employed. This indicates that SNP formation requires dynamic disassembly and reassembly of the constituting ternary complex units.
