Dynamic and adaptive materials are powerful constructs in macromolecular and polymer chemistry with a wide array of applications in drug-delivery, bioactive systems or self-healing materials. Very frequently dynamic materials featuring non-covalent interactions driven by supramolecular chemistry are based on carefully tailored cyclodextrin (CD) host/guest interactions. The precise incorporation of these host and guest moieties into macromolecular building blocks allows for the formation of complex macromolecular structures that can be utilized to form higher level assemblies executing specific pre-defined functions. Thus, dynamic materials with extraordinary adaptive property profiles
