Supramolecular assemblies

Supramolecular assembly is the creating of molecular assemblies that are of the order of cells. This occurs by weak interactions, i.e., not covalent bonding but van der Waals interactions, dipole-dipole interactions, ionic interactions or hydrogen bond.

Supramolecular assembly and molecular recognition are the building blocks of supramolecular chemistry.
