Cucurbituril-based functional materials
Smart Materials Series
First, in this chapter, smart materials are briefly introduced, followed by a short discussion on the dynamic, reversible stimuli-responsive supramolecular materials. Then the role of the host–guest complexation in the construction of these materials is evaluated in order to position the CB-containing functional materials in the context of smart materials. The chapter also provides a brief outline of the book with a brief rationale on the arrangement of the chapters.
