Time for a change in supramolecular chemistry.

In today’s Science Magazine Perspectives, our colleagues advocate for a ‘paradigm shift’ in the making of complex structures similar to those found in nature. From the self-assembly of small molecules and polymers via single steps (left), to multistep strategies (right). Read more about the ‘exciting early stages’ of this field, the unmet challenges and the […]

Congratulations to our colleagues from Groningen for their great work published in Nature Nanotechnology!

After the nano-mill and the nano-car, welcome to the newborn: the moto-MOF! In this publication, Wojchiech Danowski and co-workers demonstrate molecular motors organized in crystalline metal–organic frameworks (MOFs). Light-driven unidirectional rotation of the motor units is retained in the MOF framework and the motors can operate in the solid state with similar rotary speed (rate […]

Wilhelm Huck and coworkers publish in Nature Chemistry, Congratulations!

  Prof. Wilhelm Huck and coworkers publish on the catalytic transport of molecular cargo using diffusive binding along a polymer track in Nature Chemistry. While lowering the mobility of molecules would intuitively lead to lower reaction rates, they show here that binding reactive molecules to polymeric tracks increases reaction rates by orders of magnitude. The […]
