Cyclodextrin-graphene supramolecular system

Cyclodextrin is a cyclic supramolecular principal compound connected by type D pyran glucose via a-1,4-glycoside bond whose special structure gives it good molecular recognition properties; graphene is a good electrochemical material constructed only by monolayer sp hybrid carbon atoms. As a famous "star molecule", graphene materials are undoubtedly one of the research hotspots in the past five years. In a wide variety of graphene materials, an integrated supramolecular system constructed by the cyclodextrin-graphene combination introduces new functional features while retaining their excellent properties. The cyclodextrin cavity is good Good molecular recognition performance, and the cyclodextrin cavity is electrorich, as a nanoreactor can catalyze a range of chemical reactions. If the cyclodextrin cavity is regarded as a good molecular capture and processing site, and using the good electron conduction and transfer performance of graphene, the new, efficient and pollution-free fuel cell preparation may be realized, which will be of far-reaching significance in the rational use of resources to protect the ecological environment.


This field is on the rise, requiring the urgent continuous efforts of experts and scholars in ultramolecular chemistry, electrochemistry, electrochemistry, materials science, life science and other fields. In today's society, in the face of energy, resource and environmental crises and emphasizing sustainable development, the cyclodextrin-graphene ultramolecular system will surely receive more and more attention for its unique and excellent performance.
