Abstract: The ingenious design and synthesis of novel macrocycles bring out renewed vigor of supramolecular chemistry in the past decade. As an intriguing class of macrocycles, pillararene and pillararene-based functional materials that are constructed through the noncovalent bond self-assembly approach have been undergoing a rapid growth, benefiting from their unique structures and physiochemical properties. This review elaborates recent significant advances of electrochemical studies based on pillararene systems. Fundamental electrochemical behavior of pillar[n]arene[m]quinone and pillararene-based self-assemblies as well as their applications in electrochemical biosensors are highlighted. In addition, the advantages and functions of pillararene self-assembly systems resulted from the unique molecular architectures are analyzed. Finally, current challenges and future development tendency in this burgeoning field are discussed from the viewpoint of both fundamental research and applications. Overall, this review not only manifests the main development vein of pillararene-based electrochemical systems, but also conquers a solid foundation for their further bioelectrochemical applications.
