Naphthalenediimides and its congeners have a rich supramolecular chemistry, ranging from simple aromatic donor-acceptor studies, to molecules with complex topologies. The ease of synthesis, the ability to tune the optoelectronic properties of the aromatic cores, the multitude of supramolecular handles preexistent in the NDI and its congeners' core, make these molecules particularly attractive for theoretical and applicative studies. This is an ever-expanding field that will produce new and exciting results for decades to come.
