Abstract: Novel host-guest supramolecular copolymers have been prepared from a ß-cyclodextrin (binded to ethylenediamintetraacetic acid, EDTA) dimer and a ditopic guest with two adamantyl groups bound to pyromellitic acid. Molecular weight and molecular size were determined from static and dynamic light scattering measurements (SLS and DLS, respectively). The analysis of results suggests that the supramolecular polymer adopts a shruck structure with an average molecular weight value of Mn =(1.51±0.02)×104 g·mol-1 (degree of polymerization equal to 5).
