Abstract

This chapter gives a concise overview of the synthetic and supramolecular chemistry of cucurbit[n]uril (CB[n]) family of macrocycles and expands it to hemicucurbit[n]urils (HemCB[n]) and bambus[n]urils (BU[n]). The application of microwave-assisted synthesis to access these macrocycles is reviewed. Several extensive papers describing the synthesis, physical and recognition properties and applications of CB[n]s have been published and the reader is directed to these key sources throughout this chapter.
