This chapter reviews the use of dynamic light scattering (DLS) in the wide field of supramolecular materials chemistry through nonexhaustive yet representative examples. Aside from demonstrating the broad field of applicability of DLS, the basic principle of light scattering with reference to excellent publications on the theoretical background is recalled to highlight the major limitations of the technique to prevent misuse.
