The book conveys the relevance and fascination of the fast-growing field of supramolecular chemistry to advanced undergraduate students, and provides an overview of it to young scientists and engineers. Readers will find that supramolecular chemistry is associated with many attractive disciplines of chemistry, including molecular recognition, molecular topology, self-organization, ultrathin films, molecular devices and biomolecular systems. Supramolecular chemistry is still a very young field, and so it is difficult to predict its future, but it has already secured a firm position in the chemical sciences. For example, biotechnology and nanotechnology are expected to lead to technological revolutions in the near future that will dramatically affect our lifestyles and economies. Supramolecular chemistry is an indispensable tool in these technologies.
