The ability to control supramolecular and macroscopic self-assembly and disassembly holds great potential for responsive, reversible adhesives that can efficiently broker stresses accumulated between two surfaces. Here, cucurbituril is used to directly adhere two functionalized mica substrates creating surface-surface interactions that are held together through photo-reversible CB heteroternary complexes. Comparison of single molecule, bulk and macroscopic adhesion behavior give insight into cooperativity and stress dissipation in dynamic adhesive systems.

The current recommendation prototype on the Apollo Repository will be turned off on 03 February 2023. Although the pilot has been fruitful for both parties, the service provider IKVA is focusing on horizon scanning products and so the recommender service can no longer be supported. We recognise the importance of recommender services in supporting research discovery and are evaluating offerings from other service providers.
