The supramolecular self-assembly of polymer chains by specific, directional, and dynamic non-covalent interactions, including H-bond interaction, host-guest interaction, and amphiphilic association, has led to the development of novel polymeric supramolecular materials (PSMs). Supramolecular materials, such as micelles, fibers, and hydrogel, with unique chemical, physical, and biological properties have been fabricated and showed great potential applications in biomedical fields. This review focuses on the recent research advances in construction of SPMs, and their biomedical applications, such as drug delivery, tissue engineering, and biosensors, are also summarized.
