Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book will serve very well to inform any chemist or chemistry student curious as to the workings of molecular topology and the molecular machines that depend upon it, and should be read by anyone seeking to enter these fields. The writing is elegant and at times playful-thoroughly enjoyable to read. This book will certainly occupy pride of place in my research group' library." (Angewandte Chemie International Edition 8th December 2016)

'The book contains numerous schemes and illustrations of high quality. These facilitate the visualization of the molecular structures and of the chemical and dynamical processes. Each chapter contains approximately 500 to 1500 references and the book presents a total of 3400 unique references which corresponds to the main publications in this research domain. Undoubtedly, the book will be a most useful tool for all researchers interested in mechanically interlocked molecules ... One can anticipate, I believe, that The Nature of the Mechanical Bond will open new horizons for generations of readers and will stimulate the creativity of many architects of matter who wish to design more and more fascinating molecular systems.' (Acta Cryst, November 2017)

Review

“… a spectacular book! Many chemists will want to have it on their desks and regard it as the holy writ.”―Josef Michl

“The story is told by THE inventor-pioneer-master in the field and is accompanied by amazing illustrations… [it] will become an absolute reference and a best seller in chemistry!”―Alberto Credi

“… the great opus on the mechanical bond. A most impressive undertaking!”―Jean-Marie Lehn

“I love the first chapter, and its romp through the mechanical bond.”―Roald Hoffman

“… what a wonderful read… I thoroughly enjoyed the scientifically atypical perspective. A real pleasure.”―Bruce Gibb

“… comprehensive coverage [and] exceptional top-quality graphics… this [is a] definitive book.”―Paul Beer
