Clip-off Chemistry: Design and Synthesis of New Materials via Programmable Disassembly of Reticular Materials

Project description

A novel approach turns synthetic chemistry on its head

Manufacturing conventions have been turned upside down – literally – over the last few decades with a shift from subtractive processes like milling to bottom-up additive manufacturing. The same may be on the horizon now for synthetic chemistry, where this time rather than ‘building’ new molecules by putting together small pieces, a whole new design space may be accessible through selective bond cleavage in existing materials – clipping off parts of existing molecules. The EU-funded CLIPOFF-CHEM project intends to develop and demonstrate techniques for ‘clip-off chemistry’ using rigid ‘reticular’ molecules as a starting point, and to characterise the resultant properties.
