Supramolecular Chemistry Themed Collection now online

The latest RSC Advances web-collection on the topic of Supramolecular Chemistry is now available to view online!

The anion complexation properties of a fluorinated alcohol that is isosteric with a simple isophthalamide revealed that the alcohol can complex weakly basic anions with stability constants greater than those of the isophthalamide.The title of the collection is ‘Supramolecular chemistry: self-assembly and molecular recognition’ and is Guest Edited by Professor Mike Ward (University of Sheffield, UK). The articles presented here cover many aspects of the formation of, and molecular recognition with, non-covalent self-assembled systems. Systems studied span the range of supramolecular assemblies from MOFs to gels, and potential applications or functional behaviour that are on display here include host/guest chemistry, spin crossover, molecular sensors, and extraction/separation.  This collection of articles powerfully illustrates the diversity and increasing importance of supramolecular chemistry, and we hope you enjoy reading it.
