Parting the clouds: A supramolecular recognition reaction of cyclodexdrins with polymers—adamantyl derivative N-isopropylacrylamide copolymers—with inverse phase behavior is described. The turbidity of the polymer solutions depends upon the cyclodextrin concentration. Competition reactions with potassium-1-adamantylcarboxylate show that the inclusion-complex formation is reversible (see scheme).
