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.
• Welcome to Jason, who joins the group for an undergraduate research project. He tried to do an undergraduate project last year but was thwarted mid-project by COVID19. Here’s hoping for better luck this time!
• Emer’s lockdown review of supramolecules assembled using hydrogen bonding or halogen bonding interactions between triazole/triazolium/halotriazole/halotriazolium groups and anions is published in Chemistry – An Asian Journal.
• In collaboration with Jona Foster (University of Sheffield, UK) we showed that we can make freestanding atomically-thin nanosheets of our hydrogen bonded frameworks. Remarkably, these nanosheets can withstand boiling water, and show promise for sensing applications. Out now in Chemical Science!
• Steph’s paper comparing silicon and carbon-centered hydrogen bonded frameworks is published in Chemistry – A European Journal. We thought silicon building blocks would be more flexible than ones based on carbon – turns out we were wrong!
