Abstract: n this review paper the chronological development of concepts of supramolecular chemistry have been discussed in details with relevant references. The topic discussed molecular self-assembly, molecular recognition, complexation, template directed synthesis, mechanically interlocked molecular architectures, Dynamic Covalent Chemistry, Molecular Imprinting Techniques, concepts of molecular machines and biomimetics. Applications of these concepts in the field of materials technology, efficient catalysis, controlled drug delivery, data storage, processing devices, green chemistry and high-tech devices.
