Seeing the right face: Mono- and bifunctionalized Janus particles with controllable chemical patchiness are prepared by a general masking/unmasking technique and subsequent chemical functionalization (see picture). Supramolecular "host"- and "guest"-functionalized Janus particles were prepared, and specific noncovalent host-guest interactions were used to controllably assemble heterogeneous particles.
