The hierarchical assembly of suitable molecules using non-covalent bonds can reveal exciting novel material properties and functionalities not achievable by their individual units. In particular, the microscopic organization of suitable containers that can accommodate molecular guests within their structure is a promising approach toward realizing materials with tailored functionalities.
