3. Course Objectives

This class intends to introduce the field of supramolecular chemistry and illustrate the synthetic utility of covalent and non-covalent interactions in supramolecular chemistry. Topics will include self-assembly, molecular recognition and their applications for the design and synthesis of nanostructured materials. Students in this class shall understand supramolecular chemistry and its impacts in chemistry, biology, and materials science.
