We are a research group specialising in supramolecular chemistry based in the Research School of Chemistry at the Australian National University in Canberra. Thanks for visiting – please have a look around and email Nick if you have any questions.
• We’ve spent the last two months in lockdown with almost no lab access, but it hasn’t all been bad news: Nick’s feature article describing our work so far on amidinium carboxylate frameworks is published in the Emerging Investigator issue of Chemical Communications.
• Former summer student Duncan’s paper showing amidinium groups are prone to hydrolysis in aqueous base is accepted in the Journal of Organic Chemistry – thanks to the Coote group who were able to determine the mechanistic details using clever computational techniques.
• Nick is awarded a Future Fellowship by the Australian Research Council. This will provide $975,000 to support the group for four years (2022–2025).
• Welcome to Bailee and Oscar, who join the group for undergraduate research projects.
