Abstract

original image

Ein supramolekularer Klettverschluss mit starker und reversibler Adhäsion unter Wasser wurde mit einem synthetischen, extrem hochaffinen Wirt-Gast-Paar aus Cucurbit[7]uril (CB[7]) und Aminomethylferrocen (Fc) erhalten. In der Zuschrift auf S. 3222 ff. zeigen K. Kim et al., dass sich die CB[7]-Schlaufen und die Fc-Haken, die sich auf verschiedenen Oberflächen befinden, unter Wasser ohne Vernetzer robust verhaken und dass die Adhäsion mechanisch und chemisch reversibel ist.
