The use of cyclic structures, which organize themselves in a predicted manner to form tubular structures, is an area of great active interest. This review focuses on the design and characterization of cyclic, covalent compounds as building blocks for tubular aggregates and their behavior as multifunctional, synthetic, defined nanoobjects.
