Light to investigate (read) and operate (write) molecular devices and machines

Functional supramolecular systems can exploit photoinduced processes for gaining energy as well as for providing information on their state. We discuss the operation of these species from a fundamental viewpoint and we illustrate their potential to function as nanoscale devices and machines by means of selected examples.

About this collection

Chemical Society Reviews is delighted to present a themed issue on supramolecular photochemistry. The issue which is guest edited by Alberto Credi, gathers together the most prominent, recent advances in photochemistry at its frontiers with supramolecular chemistry, materials science, and biochemistry. The issue is dedicated to Professor Nick Turro, who sadly passed away in 2012, to celebrate his enormous contribution to photochemical sciences.
