Summary This book unveils and formulates the principal features that govern myriads of the molecular self-organization processes in micro-, nano-, and macro-dimensions from the following key representatives such as liquid water and aqueous solutions, and molecular liquids, nanodots, nanoparticles including gold, solitons, biomolecules such as DNA and proteins, biopolymers and biosensors, catalysis, molecular modeling, molecular devices, and thin films, and to offer another, more advanced directions in computational, experimental, and technological areas of nano- and bioscience towards engineering novel and powerful molecular self-organized assemblies with tailored properties
