As “the chemistry of molecular assemblies and of the intermolecular bond”,1  supramolecular chemistry exploits a variety of non-covalent intermolecular forces to connect and organise chemical architectures constructed of molecules as building blocks (called “tectons”).2  The most common type of intermolecular interactions are hydrogen bonds,3  donor–acceptor or dative-coordinate bonds,4  secondary bonds or “soft–soft” interactions,5  halogen bonds,6  π⋯π stacking7  and metal π-bonds.8  Metal⋯π(arene) bonds are well documented for transition metals with complexes such as bis(benzene)chromium, Cr(C6H6)2, and benzenechromium tricarbonyl, C6H6Cr(CO)3,...
