By Peter J. Cragg

The target of this booklet is to come back to the biomimicry and medicinal power that encouraged a few of the early supramolecular chemists and to set it within the context of present advances within the field.


Following an summary of supramolecular chemistry, the 1st part considers the efforts made to synthesize synthetic platforms that mimic organic entities. the second one part addresses the appliance of supramolecular rules to molecular diagnostics with a selected emphasis at the ‘receptor-relayreporter’ motif. the various examples selected have medical significance. The 3rd part takes the medical diagnostic subject matter additional and demonstrates the healing purposes of supramolecular chemistry via photodynamic treatment, drug supply, and the opportunity of man made peptides to shape antibiotic tubes. the fast epilogue considers the possibility of supramolecular strategies to be stumbled on for extra demanding situations in biomimetic and healing chemistry.
