Supramolecular Chemistry

Supramolecular Chemistry

Supramolecular Chemistry deals with studies of intermolecular interactions, e.g. how molecular interact by weak intermolecular forces only.This area of chemistry, beyond the molecule, is highly important for the understanding of how molecules interact and participate in creating larger molecular assemblies, e.g. a biological cell. Furthermore, supramolecular chemistry is important for the understanding of recognition and selectivity in e.g. biological systems (e.g. antibody-antigen, enzyme-substrate).

Although, supramolecular chemistry as such can help increasing the understanding of our world, a key focus of the supramolecular chemist is the design of novel molecules for specific recognition of a target molecule e.g. creating artificial antibodies.

Our research focuses on the study and development of applications of the group of molecules called cyclodextrins, molecular imprinting and design of novel photovoltaic polymers.
