The application of supramolecular chemistry on solid surfaces represents an exciting field of research that continues to develop in new and unexpected directions. This review highlights recent advances in the field which range from the fundamental aspects of the thermodynamics of self-assembly through to the development of new materials with potential application as new materials. The unique aspects of working on solid surfaces are highlighted and advances in the assembly of many component systems and highly complex fractal-like and quasicrystalline systems discussed. The unique features of working in the surface-based environment and the utilisation of scanning probe microscopies as a primary characterisation tool are highlighted.
