"…a very impressive work both intellectually and physically….individual entries were written with incisiveness and great clarity."
"…offers a comprehensive insight into the highly specialized and relatively recent field of supramolecular chemistry. The book stands true to its title: It is indeed an encyclopedia of knowledge about the chemistry of supra molecules….an excellent addition to the science section of a college library."
—Science, Books, and Film
"The articles are models of clarity...Highly recommendeded."
"…the most ambitious undertaking in the field of supramolecular chemistry… . extremely valuable to those wanting a first-rate introduction to supramolecular chemistry…Well done!"
—Jerald S. Bradshaw, Professor Emeritus, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, U.S.A.
"…the time is ripe for an Encyclopedia of Supramolecular Chemistry, presenting its basic concepts, its various objects and processes as well as its relations to other areas… of great value to the many practitioners in the field as well as those, perhaps even more numerous, who wish to get acquainted with it… . The editors and authors deserve our warmest thanks for their timely work..."
—Jean-Marie Lehn, Winner of the 1987 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Professor of Chemistry and Director of the Supramolecular Chemistry Laboratory, Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, France
"…provides comprehensive coverage of all topics of supramolecular chemistry, including information about history, developments, and contemporary aspects… . this Encyclopedia will be of immense use to both experts and those with growing interest in supramolecular science… . I congratulate Professors Jerry Atwood and Jonathan Steed for this masterpiece."
—Antonio Bianchi, Professor, Department of Chemistry, University of Florence, Italy, and International Scientific Committee (2003), International Symposium on Macrocyclic Chemistry
"… a fascinating outlook on the wide scope of modern-day chemical science… . helpful in erasing borders between the more contracted inorganic, organic, physical, and biological fields…a good guide to finding likenesses across the different studied subjects."
—Jan F. Biernat, Professor of Chemistry, Department of Chemical Technology, Gdansk University of Technology, Gdansk, Poland
"…the editors are experts in the field…[this work is] of immense value to scientists in a wide variety of fields."
