Crystal Growth and Design article accepted

Many congratulations to Drs. Chris Hawes, Dawn Barry and Salvador Blasco on their paper “Structure direction, solvent effects and anion influences in halogen-bonded adducts of 2,6-bis(iodoethynyl)pyridine” that has been accepted for publication in the ACS journal Crystal Growth & Design. This is the first contribution from our group studying halogen bonding interactions in the crystalline phase using ‘designed ligands’, and their application in the formation of novel self-assembled supramolecular structures using anion templation chemistry.
