Molecular Design and Catalysis
Members of the Molecular Design and Catalysis cluster have a common interest in the syntheses of new molecular architectures focusing on functional systems whose properties could be used in a wide range of applications.
Between them they have expertise across organic and inorganic chemistry, from small molecules and supramolecular assemblies to metal organic frameworks and nanomaterials.
- Catalysis – the design, synthesis, and characterisation of organometallic- and organo-catalysts, and supramolecular catalysts, metal oxides and metal nanoparticles
- Self-assembly – of functional molecular architectures, porous coordination frameworks, and graphene inspired nano-materials
- Molecular recognition - recognising and sensing ions, molecules, and bio-molecules
- Synthetic methods – finding new ways of making molecules and supramolecular assemblies, asymmetric synthesis, as well as understanding mechanisms, and identifying structure-property relationships
