About the Series
Supramolecular chemistry concerns itself with the structure and function of molecular complexes, formed by intermolecular bonding between two or more chemical species.These complexes have diverse applications and have been exciting great interest in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical and food industries as well as in materials science.The RSC Supramolecular series of monographs focuses on hot topics of relevance to the supramolecular chemist.This area has seen tremendous activity in recent years and the field has grown in stature, scope and potential.
Each monograph is written in a highly readable style by an internationally recognized expert. There is an emphasis on explaining concepts and providing up-to-date information. High quality, colourful illustrations are included. The books are ideal for reference and as state of the art guides at the graduate and postgraduate levels.
Generally, an author will be invited by the Series Editor to prepare a monograph on a given topic but potential authors should feel free to approach the Series Editor with suggested topics for the Monographs.
A Prasanna de Silva
