We have investigated polymeric supramolecular systems of inclusion complexes between molecular nanotube and polymer chains theoretically and experimentally. This system indicates inclusion-dissociation behavior much sharper than the inclusion complex between cyclic molecule and small compounds. And we propose some functional supramolecules utilizing the combination of the nanotube or nanoring and polymer chains such as insulated molecular wire and topological gel.
