Overview

Supramolecular chemistry is a vast interdisciplinary field that has so far resisted all attempts to contain and even fully define it. Supramolecular Chemistry is an up-to-date, integrated textbook that tells the newcomer to the subject everything they need to know to get started. Assuming little in the way of prior knowledge, the book covers the theory behind the subject, how the theory is applied, and includes coverage of the more important techniques needed by supramolecular chemists. These techniques are carefully introduced where appropriate, and always from the supramolecular chemists perspective. In addition it gives clear explanations of the origins, scope and terminology of the subject. Numerous examples and problems are included throughout the book and a web site contains updated information and additional material.

Supramolecular chemistry is one of today's fastest growing disciplines, ranging from biological chemistry to materials science; synthesis to spectroscopy to diffraction; and transcending traditional chemical subgroups.

Supramolecular Chemistry is a must for both students new to the field and for experienced researchers wanting to explore the origins and wider context of their work.

Supramolecular Chemistry:

  • Is the first integrated supramolecular book written specifically for students
  • Is clearly structured and lucidly written with many examples, applications and problems drawn from this diverse discipline
  • Features a web site with additional information and the latest developments
