《Small》 Published Special Issue for China-Germany Transregional Collaboration TRR61

 The WIELY-VCH journal,《Small》, published a special issue for China-Germany transregional collaboration “Multilevel Molecular Assemblies: Structure, Dynamics, and Function”, which is also known as TRR61 (Transregional Collaborative Research Center). The selection of papers in this issue includes two reviews, one concepts, 7 communications and 7 full papers, displaying representative research activities and achievements in the first period of TRR61, which focus on the fields of design of the building block and their assembly in solvents, complicated molecular assembly on the surface and interface, the assembly of hybrid molecule, and so on.

Facing the unsolved problems in molecular assemblies and their high scientific and economic potential, the DFG of Germany and the NSFC of China have jointly supported an interdisciplinary team of physicists, chemists, and biologists since 2008. The team comprises scientists from University of Münster and Tsinghua University in Beijing, as well as from Münster's Center of Nanotechnology and two institutes of Chinese Academy of Science. Their objective is to develop multilevel molecular assemblies within the framework of transregional collaboration, which is an excellent example of scientific collaboration between Germany and China. TRR61 will hopefully inspire more international collaboration of this type because combining two different ways of thinking can result in startling advancement.
