About us
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.

Recent news

Sadly, COVID-19 causes the lab (and all of ANU) to be shut down for at least the next three months, starting on the 25th March. In happier news, Emer’s paper looking at crystal engineering using halogen bonding tripods and halide anions is published in CrystEngComm!

Welcome to Jason, who joins the group as an undergraduate research student.

Our collaborative JACS paper that showed H-bonded frameworks could encapsulate and stabilise enzymes is highlighted in Nature Chemistry.

Nick and colleagues Luke Connal and Megan O’Mara are awarded an ARC Discovery grant ($420,000 over three years, 2020–2022) to investigate biomimetic organocatalysis and supramolecular catalysis. Woo hoo!

Some of the work undergraduate student Duncan did during his summer project is published in Chemical Communications with him as first author. Congrats Duncan!
