Chemical entities designed to noncovalently interact with
predetermined partners have fashioned a new paradigm in
chemical biology. Fluorocarbons are extremely promising as
supramolecular synthons toward these objectives.
Bioorthogonal noncovalent interactions provide a way to
modulate self-assembled systems in environments where such
control has hitherto not been possible. Fluorocarbons have
now found applications in self-assembly as well as proteomics,
biomolecule purification and in the creation of microarray
platforms. Other self-assembly motifs with similar attributes
might be exploited using the same general approach.
