Congratulations to Eoin, who successfully defended his PhD thesis “Templated synthesis of novel molecules and materials using 1,4-disubstituted-1,2,3-triazole supramolecular building blocks” and passed his viva today. The 40th PhD graduate from the Gunnlaugsson group. Eoin’s thesis was examined by Prof. Mike Zaworotko, a world leader in crystal engineering, from the University of Limerick.
Eoin’s PhD was funded by the IRC and continued the groups work on btp ligands, their coordination chemistry, self-assembly processes and materials applications; leading to 3 publications to date. These interests are continued by Isabel and June in the TG group while Eoin has departed to join the team at Abbott in Longford. The TG group wish him all the best for the future!
