Polyphenols are naturally occurring compounds that are ubiquitous in plants and display a spectrum of physical, chemical, and biological properties. For example, they are antioxidants, have therapeutic properties, absorb UV radiation, and complex with metal ions. Additionally, polyphenols display high adherence, which has been exploited for assembling nanostructured materials. We previously reviewed the assembly of different phenolic materials and their applications (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2019, 58, 1904-1927); however, there is a need for a summary of the fundamental interactions that govern the assembly, stability, and function of polyphenol-based materials. A detailed understanding of inte..
