Our research focuses on supramolecular chemistry – the chemistry of non-covalent interactions such as hydrogen bonding, halogen bonding and coordination bonds. 

About

Our research focuses on supramolecular chemistry – the chemistry of non-covalent interactions such as hydrogen bonding, halogen bonding and coordination bonds.

We are interested in using these interactions to prepare a range of materials including cages, interlocked molecules and frameworks. We investigate these for a variety of applications including environmental remediation, protection of unstable molecules and biomolecules, and selective catalysis.

Projects

This project could incorporate several different aspects in this area, but all are likely to include a mix of organic synthesis, host-guest binding studies, crystal growth and X-ray crystallography.

Student intake

Open for Honours students
