“The Pink Box”- a new chiral macrocycle exhibiting switchable aromatic stacking and interesting chiroptical properties! https://pubs.acs.org/doi/full/10.1021/jacs.2c03531
We have a new PhD position (fully funded) for a project on supramolecular dyes for sensing in biology and the environment. The research will be conducted at both the University of Birmingham (UK) and Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (in Berlin, Germany), under the joint supervision of Dr Timothy Barendt and Dr. Ute Resch-Genger, respectively.Continue reading “January 2022: New fully funded PhD position”
On November 30th TAB Lab took on the Jupp group at bowling.
Welcome to Lucy Walker and Alastair Littlewood who are starting their MSci research projects in the group. Meet them here!
As the new academic year kicks off, TAB lab welcomes three new students! Samuel Penty (left) arrives from Oxford to start his PhD and Joseph Schofield Holyoake (centre) and Micheal Asare (right) are fourth-year students from Birmingham doing MSci research projects in the group. Meet them here!
A new academic year and a new TAB lab website coming very soon! Till then, here is some nice TLC art!
A new macrocycle-fullerene host-guest complex that acts as a superior semiconductor within an organic field effect transistor (OFET) device. This work into new supramolecular assemblies for organic electronic materials was done in collaboration with the group of Prof. C. Nuckolls at Columbia University.

We have just had a paper accepted for publication in JACS about a new macrocycle that can bind and undergo supramolecular electron transfer to C60 fullerene. The macrocycle is green and box shaped – hence its nickname, “The Green Box”! You can read about it here: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/jacs.9b10929
