Aspects of the chemistry, photochemistry, and photophysics of solid-state host-guest assemblies (SSHGA) are reviewed. Materials such as cyclodextrins, inclusion clathrates, and zeolites can be used to encapsulate a variety of organic guests. The resulting SSHGA can exhibit photophysical properties which are significantly different from those of the unincluded guest. Examples are drawn from emission spectroscopic, photochemical, and nonlinear optical properties of the host-guest assemblies.
