Supramolecular materials.

Amabilino, David B. and Smith, David K. and Steed, Jonathan W. (2017) 'Supramolecular materials.', Chemical society reviews., 46 (9). pp. 2404-2420.


Molecular material properties depend upon the contacts between and the arrangement of the component parts, and therefore supramolecular chemistry has developed a highly important role in this area. This Tutorial Review, after briefly introducing the history of the field, discusses some of the most exciting and inspiring recent achievements, with special focus on soft materials, particularly gels and liquid crystals.
