Supramolecular chemistry is one of the most actively pursued fields of science. Its implications reach from molecular recognition in synthetic and natural complexes to exciting new applications in chemical technologies, materials, and biological and medical science. Principles and Methods in Supramolecular Chemistry gives a systematic and concise overview of this diverse subject. Particular emphasis is given to the physical principles and methods which are important in the design, characterization, and application of supramolecular systems. Features that make this monograph essential reading for graduates and researchers in this area include:<br> * A comprehensive overview of non-covalent interactions in supramolecular complexes<br> * A guide to characterizing such complexes by physical methods<br> * Selected applications of synthetic supramolecular systems<br> * Question and answer sections<br> * Illustrations from the Author's webpage which compliment the book.
...".Any research group in this field will find this book an excellent resource....it
would be an excellent 'starter pack' for graduate students about to embark
on an adventure in supramolecular chemistry."
(Chemistry in Britain, May 2000)
"this book...deserves to find a large audience. Both experienced and future researchers will benefit from reading it and keeping it close at hand."
(Angewandte Chemie, 18th September 2000)
"It is a comprehensive overview of non-covalent interactions and a guide to characterising molecular complexes by physical methods."
