Supramolecular Self-assembly Of Photoactive Cages

The development of luminescent materials has revolutionized human society, increased global productivity and improved the quality of life in dramatic fashion. Phosphorescent materials hold great promise in artificial lighting,  in photocatalysis to drive chemical transformations of compounds of industrial relevance,  and in sensing for the detection of a variety of analytes from nitroaromatic explosives to biological targets. Chemists have often found inspiration from the spontaneous and precise self-assembly exhibited by a giant and well-defined biological structures. In natural photosynthesis, for...
