The human body is composed of numerous types of molecules, both simple and complex, and all fundamental processes in a living body occur in water solutions. Therefore, for a drug to work, it must dissolve in body liquids, which are primarily water. Polymorphism of solid substances, a well-known problem of drug delivery, is the ability of solid drugs to form several different crystal structures (polymorphs). Polymorphs may differ in properties like biological activity, and in addition, their formation is difficult to control.

A superatom is a combination of two or more atoms that form a stable structural fragment and possess unique physical and chemical properties. Systems that contain superatoms open a number of possibilities for not only formation of new materials, but also for revealing unusual chemical reactivity. Throughout a given chemical transformation process, a superatom acts as a single unit and is left unchanged during the reaction. As a result, it would be logical to consider superatoms as elements of the periodic table in a nanoscale world. Potential areas of application for superatoms are quite broad – currently, many research directions are being explored worldwide in catalysis, material sciences, organometallic chemistry, and medical research.
