Overview

This text provides a concise and fully illustrated introduction to the study of interactions between molecules. Now a fundamental area of chemical research, supramolecular chemistry is important in an array of fields, ranging from the design of extraction agents for environmentally toxic species to the development of new pharmaceuticals. This book is structured in a logical manner and provides an ideal basis for a short lecture course for advanced undergraduate or graduate students. It begins with the general approach to supramolecular chemistry, followed by the specific methods used to bind cationic, anionic, and neutral guests. The discussion is then broadened to encompass the use of these methods to assemble remarkable, eye-catching architectures, and finally, the current and future applications of supramolecular chemistry are outlined. Each chapter concludes with a carefully selected list of leading references, making the book an ideal entry to the field.
