Research interests:

  • Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) – post-synthetic modifications, applications in catalysis (esp. enantioselective)
  • Dynamic combinatorial chemistry inside MOFs
  • Supramolecular chemistry of anions – molecular receptors, sensors and transporters for anions
  • Rotaxanes and catenanes – anion templated synthesis, applications in anion sensing
  • Photoswitchable receptors and catalysts
  • Self-organisation of bioactive multivalent structures
  • Conducting polymers – synthesis of new monomers
  • Self-assembled monolayers – synthesis and applications for the construction of anion sensors
