Research interests:

Supramolecular chemistry, 
Supramolecular catalysis

Current research:

  • Functionalization of benzene 1,3,5-tricarboxamide (BTA) and bis-urea monomers and evaluation of their self-association properties.
  • Use of supramolecular polymers, formed by self-association of BTA and bis-urea monomers, as a tunable platform for catalysis.
  • Use of supramolecular polymers, formed by self-association of bis-urea monomers, as a platform for measuring very weak interactions (< 1 kJ/mol).
  • Organogel formation rationalized by Hansen solubility parameters.

Recent results:

  • Application in asymmetric hydrogenation of a supra-macromolecular platfom, chiral and tunable, based on the self-assembly of structurally-simple BTA monomers.

  • Organogel formation rationalized by Hansen solubility parameters.
