Over the past few years, much effort has been taken to explore the
applications of nanoparticle-based structures in different fields such as nanomedicine,
molecular imaging, etc.. Supramolecular analytical methods have attracted researchers
due to their chemical formula, flexibility, convenience, and modularity for the
synthesis of nanoparticles. The incorporation of functional ligands on the surface of
supramolecular nanoparticles helps to improve their performance in many areas.
Fabrication of supra molecular materials with uniform size gives more advantages of
using them in different fields. Characterization techniques like positron emission
tomography imaging (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), fluorescence studies,
scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and UV-Vis studies help to identify the
molecular images and structure effectively. Supramolecular systems are used as an
effective technique in the nano-design of supramolecular nano-systems. They enhance
the solubility, modification of surface properties, bioconjugation of nanoparticles due
to the supramolecular recognition properties, and supramolecular materials that are
applied for the removal of targeted molecules. The designing process makes it able to
function in complex matrices. This chapter discusses the design, synthesis and
characterization of supramolecular nanostructures and their hybrids and also discusses
their application in different fields.
