JACS – Septembre 2016

Host−guest chemistry at surfaces remains a challenging topic for the development of supramolecular sensors and heterogeneous catalysts. It is also of great interest for the construction of efficient multifunctional devices, which can be controlled and tuned by host−guest interactions. Nature is a vast source of inspiration for such interfacial systems. Molecular recognition in biological media occurs thanks to structural arrangements, which generate beneficial low-range energetic effects (e.g., Hbonding, van der Waals interactions). Hence, a cavity receptor, such as those found in enzymes, can also provide …
