The controlled engineering of functional architectures composed of π-systems with unusual opto-electronic properties is currently being investigated intensively from both fundamental research and technological application viewpoints. In particular, the exploitation of the supramolecular approach for the facile construction of multidimensional architectures, featuring cavities capable of hosting functional molecules, could be used in several applications, such as nanomedicine, molecular-based memory storage devices, and sensors. This paper highlights our recent strategies to use hydrogen-bonding interactions to prepare nanostructured functional architectures via the self-assembly of organic molecular modules studied at different interfaces.
