Supramolecular chemistry is different from organic chemistry or inorganic chemistry (i.e., physical chemistry[1]) in that it does not focus only on the strong but also the weak.[2] As with other fields in modern chemistry, it owes enormous gratitude to the work and writings of Robert Boyle — a scientist whose love of God’s truth led him to overcome the chief errors of alchemical theory which were hindering the development of truly scientific chemistry.[3]

The chemists who pioneered the field, Lehn (whose father was a church organist), Cram (who sang in the choir and in a barbershop quartet), and Pedersen (who studied in University of Dayton because it was run by the Society of Mary) was awarded with a Nobel prize in 1987.[4]
