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

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

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.
