Supermacrocycles are circular assemblies held together through noncovalent forces, also known as rosettes. This article discusses the self-assembly of organic rosettes composed of three to six modules. Design features that play a part in the self-assembly of these superstructures and the factors that affect their supramolecular organization are described. In the final section of this article, we discuss the self-assembly of these superstructures into two-dimensional networks on solid substrates.
