Welcome to our web site

Our research focuses on molecular and supramolecular systems with interesting functions, supramolecular chemistry in action, at work, with emphasis on conceptual innovation, the integration of unorthodox interactions, and applications to significant challenges in science and society. Functions of current interest include catalysis (anion-π interactions, chalcogen, pnictogen bonds), fluorescent probes (mechanochemistry) and cellular uptake (dynamic covalent exchange cascades, antivirals).
