    Glycoluril, a bisurea compound known for 125 years, has during the past two decades established an impressive career as building block for supramolecular chemistry. The recent literature shows that glycoluril derivatives have a strong potential for applications in the materials sector, ranging from nanoporous materials via molecular switches, tailor-made polymers, synthetic receptors, liquid crystals, and molecular capsules to supramolecular gels.
