Cucurbiturils are very stable macrocyclic host molecules that have experienced increasing popularity for their strong and selective guest binding properties.
While cucurbituril (CB) has been shown to encapsulate small organic molecules containing both hydrophobic and cationic regions with high affinity, larger analogues of the family such as cucurbituril (CB) are well known for the ability to incorporate two guests.
These properties of CBs make them suitable for material applications.
We are currently developing methodologies to incorporate both CB and CB as linking moieties in supramolecular self-assembled macromolecular architectures.
