A new volume in the ""Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry"" series focusing on separating supramolecular structures, a key step in supramolecular chemistry.
  • Two guest editors have been at the forefront of the development of chromatographical methods to deal with supramolecular systems.
  • Reactions of supramolecular structures show the way into the future of chemistry.
  • Fumio Toda is one of the driving forces in the development of supramolecular separation systems.
  • A practical title in the prestigious “Perspectives in Supramolecular Chemistry” series.
