Supramolecular interactions between organic molecules not only enable them to self-organize into large regular assemblies, but also enhance their electronic and luminescent properties, which should help to improve the performance of organic devices. Supramolecular chemistry has been around for several decades, but never has it been so close to delivering materials of technological relevance for organic electronics. The recent European Materials Research Society symposium on Supramolecular Approaches to Organic Electronics and Nanotechnology in Strasbourg, France (24–28 May, 2004) featured a number of important advances towards the development of electronic devices.
