Research

We are interested in conformational control: creating structures that fold or arrange themselves into persistent structures in solution. We use organic chemistry to create aromatic-rich molecules that can then be combined with metal ions to self-assemble into sequences that possess the information to adopt these conformations. These include foldamers and interlocked architectures.

We make these assemblies to carry out functions such as energy transfer events or the binding or transformation of target molecules
