Abstract

Small-molecule self-assembly has proven to be a rich field for the controlled synthesis of supramolecular objects with the size scale of polymers and interesting properties. Using several recent examples from our laboratory, we discuss the development of chemical structure codes for supramolecular self-assembly objects with defined shapes. The resulting materials formed by these objects are promising for electronic functions and biological functions for regenerative medicine.
