Many naturally occurring systems show us how multi-component supramolecular assemblies can generate useful functional behaviour. In this article the problems and limitations associated with achieving such behaviour in artificial multi-component assemblies is discussed, together with two examples of functions in artificial supramolecular assemblies based on (i) host–guest chemistry in cavities of cages, and (ii) lightharvesting in multi-chromophore arrays. Important challenges for the future are summarised.
