Reversible Janus particle assembly via responsive host–guest interactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reversible assembly of Janus particles was manipulated by host–guest interaction of β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) and azobenzene. One side of every Janus particle was modified with β-CD. Superstructures of Janus particles were formed by adding azobenzene-containing polymers to the dispersion of Janus particles. The superstructures were reversibly disassembled by adding α-CD or light irradiation.
