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.
• Some of the work undergraduate student Duncan did during his summer project is published in Chemical Communications with him as first author. Congrats Duncan!
• A collaborative with Chris Sumby, Christian Doonan and Paolo Falcaro showing that our H-bonded frameworks can be used to encapsulate and stabilise enzymes is published in JACS.
• Welcome to Gareth and Indy, who join the group for undergraduate research projects!
• It’s been a busy month or so with 4 papers published: Steph has a paper showing a general route to family of hydrogen-bonded frameworks published as a “hot” paper in Chemistry — A European Journal, as well as a paper on pentiptycene frameworks (with Pei-Xi Wang and Mark MacLachlan) published in Crystal Growth & Design. Former Honours student Tom has a paper showing that hydrogen bond donors can be used to control the crystallisation (co-crystals and polymorphism) of covalent organic cages published in Crystal Growth & Design. Nick publishes an analysis of solid-state structures containing antielectrostatically hydrogen bonded dimers in CrystEngComm.
