This review describes recent topics on functional organized molecular assemblies based on "polymer nano-sheet", Polymer nano-sheets consisting of amphiphilic poly(alkylacrylamide)s are described as ultrathin polymer Langmuir-Blodgett films through two-dimensional hydrogen networks between polymer backbones, which have been developed to assemble various functional molecules and nanomaterials such as metal and magnetic nanoparticles. Surface modification and nanocoating using fluorinated polymer nano-sheets in confined area are given. Multicolored patterns based on structured color and photopatterning derived from nanostructures are demonstrated. The scope of polymer nano-sheets concerning the bottom-up soft nanodevice is also reviewed.
