Research Topic: Host-guest supramolecular chemistry
My PhD project focuses on synthesis and host-guest chemistry of the "pillarplexes" molecule. A family of hollow pillarplex will be synthesized from the reaction of macrocyclic NHC ligand and coinage metals. The host-guest interactions will be investigated by employing different guest molecules. Other properties such as electronic properties, which are potentially interesting for catalytic applications, will be evaluated as well.
