Progress of Glycoluril and Derivatives

Glycoluril was synthesized since 1877,subsequently,a series of glycoluril and its derivatives have been prepared. They could been widely used in many fields, such as coating, powder, water treatment, electronic equipment, super molecular recognition and assembly, self-assembly, the release of drug and pesticide, molecular catalysis and so on. In this review, the recent research re- sults about the preparation methods and applications of glycoluril and its derivatives are briefly introduced.
