Flow chemists, materials scientists
The process by which materials are made is just as important as the structure of the pieces they are made from. We use continuous flow chemistry and automation to build process-structure-function relationships and discover new supramolecular materials. We aim to consider the principles of manufacturing at the earliest stages of material design, and use our expertise in organic chemistry and non-covalent interactions to fine-tune the properties of self-assembled materials.
Continuous Flow in Materials Chemistry
HIGH THROUGHPUT FLOW SCREENING
By using an automated continuous flow process, high-throughput screening allows us to screen a wide range of new materials and precursors.
CONTINUOUS FLOW: CONTROL, SAFETY, AND SCALE
We are applying continuous flow and automation technologies to new areas, such as reversible chemistry, supramolecular synthesis, and materials science - but we also do a lot of synthesis the normal way!
