The design of artificial new host compounds has progressed rapidly and contributed to the development of new fields of supramolecular chemistry. Furthermore, the application of supramolecular systems is becoming more important and has implications on, for example, medicine and agriculture.
Focusing on the aspects of separation and reaction that are specific to supramolecular chemistry, this work will be of value to research chemists, engineers and graduate students, not only in the field of supramolecular chemistry, but in the wider area of pharmaceutical chemistry, green chemistry and agriculture.
