Proteins with an iron clasp: Site-selective incorporation of a ferrocene molecule into a protein allows for easy, strong, and reversible supramolecular protein immobilization through a selective monovalent interaction of the ferrocene with a cucurbit[7]uril immobilized on a gold surface. The proteins can be printed in a uniform monolayer that is resistant to washing conditions, but can be removed through competition with an excess of ferrocene ligand.
