Introduction
Over the past several decades, the fabrication of functional nanomaterials using molecular self-assembly has received enormous attention for their potential applications in optoelectronic, biomedical and technological fields. Researchers around the globe have exploited various non-covalent interactions (for example, electrostatic, π-π stacking, H-bonding) to spatially organize and control the assembly of the building blocks, as the defects arise during self-assembly process may affect the device performance. Among the various established approaches available, the introduction of (i) macrocycles (for example, crown ethers, cyclodextrins, cucurbiturils, calixarenes, catenanes, rotaxanes, cyclophanes) for their ability to form strong host-guest complexes and (ii) short peptides for their ability to organize the functional chromophores via strong intermolecular H-bonding has received a great attention. By exploiting these approaches, a wide variety of supramolecular nanoscale materials (for example, micelles, bilayer vesicles, 1D nanofibers, 2D sheets, gels) have been reported that exhibit remarkable functional properties. The present issue will focus on the recent developments of the functional self-assembling nanomaterials that are shown below.
