One of the most efficient ways to create new materials is the fabrication of nanocomposites and/or nanohybrids. Composites adopt some characteristics from the components that compose it; synergistic effects can also produce properties not present in any of the parts. A union of the worlds of organic, biological, and inorganic materials merges the versatility, fine structural precision, and mechanical and chemical stability of these respective areas. In this short review, we introduce recent developments of supramolecular approaches for nanocomposite fabrications mainly based on LbL assembly, LB films, and mesoporous structures, as well as incorporation of various supramolecular components into composites.
