    This thesis deals with multivalent β-cyclodextrin (CD) host-guest interactions in solution and at interfaces. In solution, multivalency has been exploited to develop strongly binding CD dimers. Switchable tethers have been implemented to control the possible relative orientations of the two CD cavities of the CD dimers and therewith the extent of multivalency in the binding of guest molecules, giving access to tunable receptor molecules, the binding properties of which can be controlled by external stimuli.
