Epub 2016 Oct 17.A pseudopolyrotaxane (PPRX) comprising 3-carboxy-5-nitrophenylboronic acid modified γ-cyclodextrin (NPBA-γ-CyD) and naphthalene modified polyethylene glycol (Naph-PEG) as a sugar-responsive supramolecular structure is prepared. The binding of sugar by the NPBA group induced disintegration of the Naph-PEG/NPBA-γ-CyD PPRX, allowing the components to be dissolved. The Naph-PEG/NPBA-γ-CyD PPRX exhibited better sensitivity compared to that of a PPRX based on 4-carboxyphenylboronic acid modified γ-cyclodextrin (PBA-γ-CyD). Read More
