Supramolecular Polymers

Kinds of polymers whose monomeric units are held together via highly directional and reversible non-covalent interactions are called Supramolecular Polymers. Non-covalent interactions include hydrogen bonding, π-π interaction, metal coordination, and host-guest interaction. Supramolecular polymers raise from both a fundamental and applied perspective, which in recent years has brought a deep understanding of their physicochemical properties and advanced functionalities.

The session will feature a wide range of topical discussions, highlighting important fields such as Nano machines, meso-scale self-assembly, controlled supramolecular polymerization. A particular focus will be given to the complexity in self-assembly processes and how it can result in novel functions. Small increases in temperature reduces the viscosity by a large extent that allows the materials to be easily processed, and will be useful for several applications. It will become an integral part of the general field of self-assembling polymers, and will find applications in areas ranging from electronics to medicine.
