Be specific: A supramolecular adsorbate consisting of an adamantyl group (red) and an oligo(ethylene glycol) chain has been designed to prevent nonspecific protein adsorption at cyclodextrin molecular printboards. The adamantyl group allows specific and reversible interactions. Specific immobilization of proteins (gray) is possible through multivalent orthogonal linkers by effective replacement of the monovalent adsorbate (Ni2+ ions (green) may be needed; see picture).
