The study of polymeric-sized supramolecules constructed by non-covalent self-assembly or self-organization continues to be a growing activity leading to interesting materials with unique features. An evolving theme is the self-organization of large covalent objects (shape-controlled mesomolecules) having high-definition molecular surfaces. The folding of polymer molecules into conformationally ordered states is a new vista on the horizon.
