Learning Objectives

To provide the basic concepts of host-guest chemistry and molecular recognition for the development of the non-covalent synthesis of more complex molecular and supramolecular systems.

Course Structure


Detailed Course Content

Self-assembly in nature. Weak non-covalent interactions. Molecular recognition and host-guest chemistry. Non-covalent synthesis involving functionalized artificial receptors (crown ethers, cryptands, ciclodextrins, ciclophanes and calixarenes). Supramolecular assemblies and their characterization in solution.

Textbook Information

Monographs and general reviews on host-guest and supramolecular chemistry.
