The materials that we depend on rely upon ever-increasing structural complexity for their function. Designing complex materials for these devices through the art of chemical synthesis brings challenges and opportunities. The use of chemical self-assembly as a synthetic technique can simplify materials preparation by shifting intellectual effort away from designing molecules, and towards the design of chemical systems that are capable of self-assembling in such a way as to express the desired materials properties. This talk will focus upon the design of self-assembly processes that can bring together simple, organic molecules and first-row transition-metal ions into complex, functional structures.

Entry is free to all and free refreshments will be provided.
