Supramolecular Chemistry: New Dimensions of Chemistry on the Nanoscale
Sheshanath V. Bhosale
Machinery of life was developed biologically in long-term evolutionary processes, and there is no protocol about the experiments, which finally succeeded. Chemists have been successful with synthesis, isolation and analysis but not with the reproduction of the working molecular apparatus. The introduction of supramolecular self-assembly approach as an engineered phenomenon allowed us to address one of the great challenges on nanoscale level – the separation, containment and manipulation of individual molecules and allow studying molecular interactions, which would make it possible to answer some simple biological questions experimentally on nanoscale level, which are difficult to approach in complex biological modules.
