The reduction of AuCl4- in the presence of perthiolated cyclodextrin (CD) receptors yields gold nanospheres modified with attached CDs. These modified gold particles are soluble in water and behave as hosts toward conventional CD guests, as evidence by voltammetric data. It is suggested that CD-modified gold nanospheres is useful as multisite hosts in aqueous media.
