Self-Assembly & 4f metals

The group’s interest in self-assembly falls under two categories of research: urea gelators (work which is strongly linked to the anion chemistry projects) and lanthanide coordination chemistry.

Functional molecular bundles

Triple-stranded dimetallic helicates & other higher order structures

Interlocked Architectures & Mechanically Functional Assemblies

Luminescent Polymer Materials & other Soft Matter

Cyclen-based f-metal complexes


These projects have been funded by SFI (RFP and IN.I grants) and IRCSET Postgraduate Fellowships.
