An exciting research challenge in supramolecular chemistry is to design, synthesize, and characterize nano-sized architectures with applications in biology, chemistry, and materials science.1 Predicting and designing non-covalently bound supramolecular complexes and assemblies is difficult because of the weakness of the interactions involved, thus the resulting superstructure is often a compromise between the geometrical constraints of the building blocks and the competing weak intermolecular interactions.2

Our research interest has been focused on the studies of weak non-covalent intermolecular, viz. supramolecular interactions as the driving force in self-assembly and molecular recognition, especially in the solid state by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The lecture will highlight some of our recent studies on hydrogen3 and halogen4 bonded systems, π-π5, cation…π6, CH…anion7, and anion…π8 interactions and metal ion coordination9 in molecular self-assembly and molecular recognition in various systems such a resorcinarenes, ditopic receptors, rotaxanes, L6M4 tetrahedra, etc..
