As a kind of soft materials promoted by multiple noncovalent interactions, supramolecular chiral assemblies own the distinctive confined chiral microenvironment and play an important role in material engineering, life science, optical devices and catalytic synthesis. In general, supramolecular chiral assembles can be fabricated through the assembly of chiral molecules, or a combination of achiral molecules and chiral inducements, or mere achiral molecules in symmetry breaking manner. In this paper, the general fabrication strategies of supramolecular chiral assemblies in recent years are summarized, and their improvements in chiral template, chiral recognition, circularly polarized luminescence and asymmetric catalysis are briefly reviewed, as well as the shortcomings in these fields. With the development of supramolecular chiral assemblies, the mechanism of chirality transfer will be explained in depth in future, which may help us understand the chirality phenomenon in organism and give a clue to answer to the origin of homochirality in nature.

Key words: supramolecular chiral assembly, chiral template, chiral recognition, circularly polarized luminescence, asymmetric catalysis
