A bowl-shaped organic host was prepared by linking two anthracene-embedded bispyridine ligands with two methylene spacers. The water-soluble host has a hemispherical hydrophobic cavity (∼1 nm in diameter) with two cationic methylenebispyridinyl (Lewis acidic) moieties and shows the selective recognition...

Dynamic covalent bonds supplied by reversible anthracene dimerization were combined with pillar[5]arene/imidazole host-guest interactions to construct double-dynamic polymers. Heating such polymers (in solution or as a gel) led to depolymerization by dissociation of either the host-guest complexes alone or the...

A new type of anthracene organogelator based on uracil was obtained using organic aromatic solvents, cyclohexane, DMSO, ethanol, and ethyl acetate. It was further characterized by field-emission scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Specifically, the resulting organogels were demonstrated...
