Summary The purposeful self-assembly of discrete molecules or atoms to form larger-scale, systematic structures is termed supramolecular chemistry - a field that earned the 1987 Nobel prize in chemistry for its pioneers Lehn, Pedersen, and Cram. Self-recognition and reproducible self-assembly are one of the great keys to life, with DNA and its information-carrying helix structure being the best example. A very promising approach to the creation of man-made materials with superior properties and perfectly defined structures is the imitation and harnessing of natural and unnatural self-assembly processe
