About this book

Smart materials constructed through supramolecular assemblies have been receiving considerable attention because of their potential applications, which include self-healing materials, energy storage, photonic devices, sensors and theranostics. Host–guest chemistry of various macrocyclic receptors with organic guests provides a unique way to control tailor-made nanoarchitectures for the formation of pre-designed functional materials. Cucurbituril-based Function Materials provides an overview of this fascinating macrocycle, cucurbituril (CB) homologues and derivatives-based supramolecular nanostructured materials. Chapters cover the synthesis, properties and application of CB-based smart materials and nanostructures. With contributions from key researchers, this book will be of interest to students and researchers working in materials science, as well as those working on cucurbituril-based materials in organic and physical chemistry.

Author information

Dönüs Tuncel received her PhD degree from Imperial College, London in the area of cucurbiturils and supramolecular polymer chemistry and then, worked about 3 years as a postdoctoral research fellow in the Chemistry Department of Oxford University in the area of 2D-fluorescent polymer networks and polymeric nanotubes. In 2003, she joined the Department of Chemistry at Bilkent University. Her research involves the design and synthesis of cucurbituril-based supramolecular nanostructured materials and functional organic and hybrid organic-inorganic nanomaterials and the exploitation of these materials in the optoelectronic and biomedical applications. She is a fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry.
