Abstract

A bifunctional monomer FGG-PEG8-GGF bearing two Phe-Gly-Gly residues and an octaethylene glycol linker has been designed and synthesized. Water-soluble supramolecular polymers can form spontaneously by mixing the monomer and cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]) in a 1 : 1 ratio through specific interactions between CB[8] and the Phe-Gly-Gly residues.
