A summary of all the most important aspects of supramolecular science, from molecular recognition in chemical and biological systems to supramolecular devices, materials and catalysis. The 17 chapters cover calixarenes, catenanes, cavitands, cholophanes, dendrimers, membranes and self-assembly systems, molecular modelling, molecular level devices, organic materials, peptides and protein surfaces, recognition of carbohydrates, rotaxanes, supramolecular catalysis. A forward-looking chapter written by J.-M. Lehn indicated the future prospects for the entire field.
Audience:Ph.D. students and young researchers in chemistry, physics and biology.
