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.
