Abstract

The present chapter focuses on the most significant developments in the organization of multicomponent π-conjugated molecules into supramolecular polymers. The different approaches to prepare these structures are presented and classified into the different types of supramolecular organizations that are obtained by simple mixing or by using a multistep methodology.
