About this book

This handbook presents recent advances and offers a comprehensive reference resource covering the developments in and applications of macrocyclic supramolecular assembly, with a focus on their construction, structural characters and biological functions. The main topics addressed include: 

  1. Construction and structure of macrocyclic supramolecular assembly – key building blocks, construction methods, structural motifs, and stimuli responsive control
  2. Approach and technology – controllable synthesis, molecular recognition, spectral and thermodynamic study, supramolecular assembly at interfaces, orthogonal self-assembly, the supramolecular organic framwork (SOF), molecular induced aggregation, supramolecule assisted 3D printing, theoretical calculation and molecular simulation 
  3. Biological applications – chemical and biological sensing, theranostic tools, molecule/ion channels, drug/gene delivery, supramolecule assisted biomolecule production, supramolecule assisted transmembrane transport, supramolecule assisted immunity regulation, supramolecule-based medicinal drug, etc. 
This handbook appeals to graduate and undergraduate students as well as scientists with interests in supramolecular chemistry, biochemistry, functional material and nanotechnology.

About the authors

Yu Liu is a professor at Nankai University. He received his Ph.D. from Himeji Institute of Technology, Japan, in 1991. Then, he spent about 2 years (1991–1992) as postdoctoral fellow at Lanzhou Institute of Chemical Physics. In 1993, he moved to Nankai University as a professor and got the special government allowances of the State Council. Prof. Liu obtained the support of National Outstanding Youth Fund in 1996 and is now the specially appointed professor of Cheung Kong Scholars Programme. He has made a great deal of contribution to the supramolecular chemistry of crown ether, cyclodextrin, and calixarene, and is the contributor of 8 books and more than 500 articles (h-index: 61). Prof. Liu won a Second Class Award of Natural Science from Chinese Academy of Science in 1990; a Second Class Award of Scientific and Technological Progress from Ministry of Education in 1998; three times First Class Award of Natural Science of Tianjin in 2000, 2005, and 2015; a Second Class Award of State Natural Science Prize in 2010, and a Special Grade Award of Baogang Outstanding Teacher in 2003.

Yong Chen obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2001 from Nankai University (China), majoring in physical organic chemistry. From 2002 to 2003, he was an assistant professor at the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Science. Subsequently, Prof. Chen went to Ecole Normale Superieure (ENS, France) as a post-doctor in 2002 via invitation from National Scientific Research Center of France (CNRS). At the end of 2003, he joined the Supramolecular Chemistry Laboratory of Nankai University as an associate professor and became a professor in 2009. Prof. Chen’s research interests are mainly focused on supramolecular chemistry of cyclodextrins and cucurbiturils.

Heng-Yi Zhang born in Anhui Province of China, in 1965, is a professor of Nankai University (Tianjin, China). He received his M.S. degree from Anshan Research Institute of Thermal Energy in 1994 and his Ph.D. from Nankai University in 2000. In the same year, he became a lecturer of Nankai University and a professor in 2005. His current research interests focus on molecular recognition and molecular assembly based on the macrocyclic compounds including crown ether, cyclodextrin, and cucurbituril. Prof. Zhang is the contributor of 4 books and more than 130 research papers. In addition, He won one Second Class Award of State Natural Science Prize in 2010, two First Class Award of Natural Science Prize by Tianjin in 2005 and 2015, and one Second Class Award of Natural Science Prize by Ministry of Education in 2002.
