MASC 2017 & Meeting a Nobel Laureate!

15 Dec 2016

The Avestro Group enjoyed two days of cutting-edge scientific achievements in supramolecular chemistry, organic synthesis, nanotechnology and functional molecular materials at this year's RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (MASC) meeting, hosted at the University of Edinburgh 15-16 Dec 2017. How many can say they shook the hand of a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry? ;) Click on the image to learn more.

Welcome Julian & Charlotte!

02 Oct 2016

The Avestro Group welcomes the start of 2016-17 academic year at Durham and, along with it, our first two 4th year MChem project students: Julian West and Olivia (but Charlotte, she prefers!) Wright. Julian will be exploring some oxidation chemistry for energy storing macrocycles and Charlotte will be targeting the synthesis of pi-peptide polymers. Visit the 'Group Members' page to learn more about them and their research.

We are a new research group (est. Jan 2016) in the Department of Chemistry at Durham University. We are interested in the rational design and structure-property analysis of functional organic molecules & macromolecular foldamers with well-defined geometries and intra-molecular interactions.
 

Our research seeks to address  fundamental scientific questions with the potential to impact the design of molecular (opto)electronics, sensors and 'smart' materials, e.g., for energy generation, energy storage, and nanotheranostic technologies. Learn more about our projects on the 'Research' page. |||||••
