David Reinhoudt the Dutch pioneer of supramolecular chemistry

After many years of highly influential work in this field, in the past 15 years his attention has shifted towards applications in nanoscience and -technology. He has achieved enormous success in this area, as witnessed by his Simon Stevin Mastership Award of the Dutch Applied Science Foundation in 1998. He has participated in numerous collaborations working on single-molecule photonics and electronics and microfluidics, and is one of The Netherlands' most productive scientists with more than 800 refereed publications, books, and patents.
