A must-have resource that covers everything from out-of-equilibrium chemical systems and materials to dissipative self-assemblies  

Out-of-Equilibrium Supramolecular Systems and Materials presents a comprehensive overview of the synthetic approaches that use supramolecular bonds in various out-of-thermodynamic equilibrium situations. With contributions from noted experts on the topic, the text contains information on the design of dissipative self-assemblies that maintain their structures when fueled by an external source of energy. The contributors also examine molecules and nanoscale objects and materials that can produce mechanical work based on molecular machines. Additionally, the book explores non-equilibrium supramolecular polymers that can be trapped in kinetically stable states, as well as out-of-equilibrium chemical systems and oscillators that are important to understand the emergence of complex behaviors and, in particular, the origin of life.  

This important book: 

  • Offers comprehensive coverage of fields from design of dissipative self-assemblies to non-equilibrium supramolecular polymers 
  • Presents information on a highly emerging and interdisciplinary topic 
  • Includes contributions from internationally renowned scientists 

Written for chemists, physical chemists, biochemists, material scientists, Out-of-Equilibrium Supramolecular Systems and Materials is an indispensable resource written by top scientists in the field.
