Artificial light-harvesting nanoparticles were prepared from supramolecular polymers comprised of pillararene with anthracene-derived donors and acceptors through host-guest interactions. The resulting water-dispersible nanoparticles displayed efficient energy transfer and excellent light harvesting ability in part because the steric bulk of pillararene suppressed the self-quenching of the chromophores.
