Abstract

A four component host-guest system comprising β-cyclodextrin (β-CD), cucurbit[7]uril (CB7) and two chalcone guests was demonstrated to undergo pH-triggered self-sorting in aqueous solution. This phenomenon arises from the contrasting complexation induced pKa shifts displayed by these guests after complexation with CB7.
