The second edition of "Analytical Methods in Supramolecular Chemistry" comes in two volumes and covers a broad range of modern methods and techniques now used for investigating supramolecular systems, e. g. NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, extraction methods, crystallography, single molecule spectroscopy, electrochemisty, and many more. In this second edition, tutorial inserts have been introduced, making the book also suitable as supplementary reading for courses on supramolecular chemistry. All chapters have been revised and updated and four new chapters have been added.
A must-have handbook for Organic and Analytical Chemists, Spectroscopists, Materials Scientists, and Ph.D. Students in Chemistry.
From reviews of the first edition:
"This timely book should have its place in laboratories dealing with supramolecular objects. It will be a source of reference for graduate
students and more experienced researchers and could induce new ideas on the use of techniques other than those usually used in the laboratory."
Journal of the American Chemical Society (2008) VOL. 130, NO. 1 doi: 10.1021/ja0769649
"The book as a whole or single chapters will stimulate the reader to widen his horizon in chemistry and will help him to have new ideas in his research."

Christoph A. Schalley is professor for organic chemistry and modular synthesis at the Free University of Berlin since October 2005. He received his PhD under the supervision of Helmut Schwarz at the Technical University of Berlin followed by a postdoctorate with Julius Rebek, Jr. at The Scripps Research Institute in California. In 1999 he joined the University of Bonn as a Liebig-Fellow of the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie to start his own independent research group. Professor Schalley has authored more than 150 publications and (co-)edited several books on mass spectrometry, dendrimers and template synthesis. He is recipient of Dozentenstipendium of the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie (2004) and the Mattauch-Herzog award of the German Society for Mass Spectrometry (2006). His research interests also include mass spectrometric characterization and gas-phase chemistry of supramolecules.
