Understanding and exploiting competitive solvent interactions in supramolecular polymerization: from solutions to bulk materials

Project description

Investigating competitive solvent interactions in supramolecular polymerisation

Supramolecular chemistry involves the organisation of molecules into larger, higher-order structures. Supramolecular polymers, created from the assembly of monomer units through non-covalent interactions, have intriguing properties that render them suitable candidates for a plethora of applications ranging from tissue engineering to optoelectronics. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the SolSupPol project aims to shed light on how chiral solvents affect supramolecular polymerisation, which is still poorly understood. In particular, the project will investigate how solvent interactions affect the helical bias and thermal behaviour of supramolecular polymers in the solutions. Studying both macroscopic solvent effects and their molecular origin, researchers could achieve unprecedented control over solvent interactions in supramolecular polymerisation reactions.
