Volume 9 contains 18 chapters devoted to recent developments in the field of template reactions
and self-assembly or self-organization processes.
A large variety of approaches is described, spanning transition metal-based template strategies
allowing to build more and more complex and functionalized structures, to purely organic
procedures. The latter methodology has been applied to the construction of topologically
fascinating systems as well as to organized assemblies (biomimetic materials, mesaphases, etc)
with well defined structures and specific properties.
