Supramolecular chemistry is a broad emerging field that features molecular assemblies built-up from components interacting through specific noncovalent interactions (1, 2). The efforts in the area extend from the studies of molecular recognition and bioorganic host-guest chemistry over the last 25 years that have extensively characterized the nature and variability offundamental noncovalent interactions, particularly hydrogen bonding The latter work is significantly extended in a recent paper…

New supramolecular systems have been assembled in the laboratory with the use of bridging unities such as tetrapyridylporphyrins, porphyrazines and polypyrazines, connecting transition metal complexes and clusters, and interact with DNA, generating 1O2 and leading to efficient oxidative clivage for photodynamic terapy applications.

A Periodic System of Supramolecular Elements.

It is anticipated that the research on such large molecules will reveal construction principles dictated by recurring motifs that govern structure formation by folding and self-assembly that may lead to the establishment of a Periodic System of Supramolecular Elements.

Physical study of supramolecular systems informs the evolution of new structures, which express more complex supramolescular functionality, which may lead to the synthetic targeting of assemblies for specific applications.

Supramolecular Chemistry in the Biomembrane

Recent efforts from the supramolecular chemistry community to mimic natural functions of lipid membranes, such as sensing, molecular recognition, membrane fusion, signal transduction, and gated transport, are reviewed.

Molecular Variables in the Self-Assembly of Supramolecular Nanostructures

Supramolecular structures have the potential to provide macromolecular behavior using relatively low molar mass building blocks. We present here data on the self-assembly of triblock rodcoil

Novel supramolecular affinity materials based on (−)-isosteviol as molecular templates

The readily available ex-chiral-pool building block (−)-isosteviol was combined with the C 3-symmetric platforms hexahydroxytriphenylene and hexaaminotriptycene providing large and rigid molecular architectures that serve in particular as templates for tracing air-borne arenes at low concentration.
