    Jurriaan Huskens comments on his article ‘Multivalency in supramolecular chemistry and nanofabrication’:

    “The topic of multivalency has been around in biology for quite some time. It plays there a very important role in interactions occurring at cell membranes and are thus essential for understanding biological processes such as signaling and infection. I think the paper is cited so well mainly for two reasons: (i) the biological systems are so complex that no good quantification can be done in these; the paper shows that good supramolecular models can be built that shed light on the quantitative aspects of multivalency; (ii) what people have probably not realized until recently is that the strength of multivalent interactions also allows application in materials science, i.e. to build up materials via strong bottom-up self-assembly; the paper provides the first overview on such activities, and has led to many followers in the past few year.”
