Supramolecular Chemistry

Supramolecular chemistry involves the organized arrangement of molecules via the control and manipulation of intermolecular interactions. It includes host-guest chemistry, self-assembly, and systems chemistry, and has applications in materials chemistry and in biochemical systems. It is characterized by weak intermolecular interactions such as hydrogen bonding, pi-pi interactions, electrostatic interactions, and metal coordination, and includes molecular folding, molecular recognition, and mechanically-interlocked assemblies.
