Abstract

Stick it to them! Underwater adhesion becomes possible by taking advantage of highly stable host-guest complexes formed between cucurbit[7]uril hosts and ferrocenyl residues. The formation of multiple noncovalent complexes between the two complementary surfaces gives rise to strong adhesive forces resulting in a "supramolecular velcro" system that operates efficiently in the presence of water.
