While pH-driven interconversion of tetraquinoxaline cavitands (QxCav) from vase to kite conformation has been extensively studied both in solution and at interfaces, cavitands behavior in solid matrices is still unexplored. Therefore, the synthesis of a new class of quinoxaline cavitand based copolymers is here reported; a soluble linear poly(butyl methacrylate) (PBMA) and an insoluble cross-linked polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), ensuring a convenient incorporation of the switchable unit, were chosen as polymer matrices. Conformational studies, performed both in solution and at the solid state, confirmed the retention of vase → kite switching behavior when moving from monomeric units to polymeric structures.
