Special Issue entitled “Recent Advances in Supramolecular Chemistry and Self-Assembly” has been announced in Molecules (IF 4.927).
This Special Issue will focus on recent innovative developments in supramolecular chemistry and self-assembly fields, especially the functional supramolecular self-assembled materials based on macrocyclic hosts. Macrocyclic hosts, such as crown ethers, cyclodextrins, calixarenes, cucurbiturils, pillararenes, biphenarenes and metallacycles, play an extremely important role in constructing functional supramolecular self-assembled materials. Up to now, functional supramolecular self-assembled systems based on macrocyclic hosts have been widely used in the fields of molecular machines, supramolecular amphiphiles, macrocyclic amphiphiles, supramolecular polymers, drug delivery systems and adsorptive separation processes.
