Description: Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry relates recent developments and new exciting approaches in supramolecular chemistry. The series covers all areas from theoretical and modelling aspects through organic and inorganic chemistry and biochemistry to nanochemistry, materials, solid-state and polymer sciences reflecting the many and varied applications of supramolecular structures in modern chemistry. The design of artificial new host compounds has progressed rapidly and contributed to the development of new fields of supramolecular chemistry. Furthermore, the application of supramolecular systems is becoming more important and has implications on, for example, medicine and agriculture. Focusing on the aspects of separation and reaction that are specific to supramolecular chemistry, this work will be of value to research chemists, engineers and graduate students, not only in the field of supramolecular chemistry, but in the wider area of pharmaceutical chemistry, green chemistry and agriculture.
