Supramolecular Chemistry

Course Description

Supramolecular chemistry is “chemistry beyond the molecule”. It is an interdisciplinary field that covers the physical, chemical and biological properties of complex chemical species held together mainly by non-covalent interactions. This course provides an introduction to the field, and discusses the intermolecular forces that dictate the formation of supermolecules and supramolecular assemblies and their properties. Main topics include basics of molecular recognition, host-guest chemistry, self-assembly, supramolecular materials and function, as well as supramolecular medicine.
