The Foster Group

Our interests lie at the interface between supramolecular chemistry and nanomaterials.

Our aim is to unlock new applications that were previously impossible with conventional materials by designing molecular building blocks capable of self-assembling into nano-structured materials.

Our research is intrinsically multi-disciplinary and collaborative. Projects within our group span organic, inorganic and nanomaterials synthesis, solid- and solution-state characterisation, diffraction, spectroscopy, and microscopy.

We’re interested in creating new types of sensors, catalysts, membranes, composite materials and electronic devices. This leads us to collaborate extensively with industrial and academic partners across disciplines and around the world.
