About this book

This book investigates the latest developments in supramolecular assembly systems for mimicking biological structures and functions. Consisting of 14 chapters, it covers various assembly systems, such as polysaccharides, peptides, proteins, biopolymers, natural materials and various hybrid systems. Further, it focuses on different types of supramolecular systems with particular functions or structures that are relevant to living systems. A number of modern techniques used to study the supramolecular systems, such as total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM) and two-photon confocal microscopy, are also introduced in detail.

Unlike conventional books on supramolecular assemblies, this book highlights the functions of the assembly systems, particularly their biological applications. As such, it offers a valuable resource for experienced researchers, as well as graduate students working in the field of supramolecular chemistry and biomimetic systems.

About the authors

Junbai Li received his PhD from the Department of Chemistry, Jilin University in 1992. He then served as a postdoctoral fellow at the Interface Department of the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Germany from 1994 to 1996. He is currently a professor at the Institute of Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences. He has been an editor of Colloids & Surfaces A since 2005 and became editor-in-chief in 2017. He has also been a section editor of Current Opinion in Colloid & Interface Science since 2006. His main research interests are molecular assemblies of biomimetic systems, self-assembly, biointerfaces, and the design and synthesis of bioinspired materials with various nanostructures.
