The aim of the work described in this thesis is to study the role of multivalency in the dynamic behavior of multivalent supramolecular systems. Several supramolecular systems have been employed, ranging from π‐π charge‐transfer complexes to cucurbit[n]uril (CB[n]) and β‐cyclodextrin (βCD) host‐guest complexes. All these systems have been used before as building blocks to fabricate nanostructures. Understanding their kinetics potentially allows the design of more stable or fast‐responding devices.
