We report the transfer of entropic chain length effects into the realm of supramolecular chemistry and thereby demonstrate a macromolecular method to tune the reaction equilibria of hydrogen bonding motifs via the application of substituents of differing lengths and masses while not altering the actual recognition units to achieve a difference in the degree of association. The supramolecular adducts are characterized via temperature-dependent nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. (Figure Presented).
