AbstractNature uses the power of non-covalent interactions as the basis for many kinds of adhesion phenomena. Inspired by nature, scientists have prepared various synthetic adhesive materials that rely on a number of non-covalent interactions at the interfaces. Commonly used non-covalent interactions include hydrogen bonding, π-π stacking, charge transfer interactions, electrostatic interactions, hydrophobic interactions, macrocycle-based host-guest interactions, among others. Within this context, macrocycle-based host-guest interactions are of particular interest. Often they give rise to distinct properties, such as multiple combined noncovalent interactions and a diversity of stimuli-based responsiveness. In this tutorial review, we will summarise recent advances in adhesive supramolecular polymeric materials that rely primarily on macrocycle-based host-guest interactions. An overview of future challenges and a perspective of this sub-field are also provided.
