SA Research Chair in Nanostructured Functional Materials

​This Chair encompasses the study of structure-property relationships in synthetic crystals. The research involves the design of molecules that pack in the solid state such that their relative arrangements give rise to interesting and useful functionality. It also focuses on the design and assembly of these materials, and studies their structures at the molecular level with a view to understanding ​the direct link between form and function.
