Well done for the second time in as many weeks to Nicolas for winning the Best Oral Presentation Prize at the RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Interest Group Early Career Meeting today. Very well deserved!
Edward, Guillaume (posters) and Nicolas (talk) all gave great presentations at the annual St Andrews Postgraduate symposium on 5–6 December.
Particular congratulations to Nicolas on winning one of the runners-up prizes for his talk Complementary Dynamic Covalent Nanoparticle Building Blocks. Well deserved!

A very enjoyable and relaxing afternoon last Thursday at the Kay & Philp groups’ Christmas lunch. Good to get into the festive spirit early!
Thanks to Lina for organising everything!
On Tuesday, Euan enjoyed an interesting and enjoyable day visiting colleagues and giving a research seminar at the Chemistry Department at Newcastle University.
Sorry if you tried to visit us over the past two weeks and found the site down. Hopefully the gremlins have been removed and we are visible to the world again!
We welcome three new honours project students this year: Daniel Davidson, Tang Phattharaphuti and Lewis Ratcliffe. Looking forward to the results of an exciting range of projects – hope you have a blast guys!
It appears the dog days of summer in St Andrews (!!) have had a negative impact on the pace of website updates.
In late June, we were very happy to welcome James Findlay from the Crowley group at University of Otago to the lab for two weeks. Working with Nicolas, James brought some of the Crowley group’s cool ferrocene-based molecular switches to the lab. We hope to tell you about some exciting results soon!
It was also great to host James’s supervisor – and Euan’s ex-colleague from Edinburgh days – James (yes it was confusing) for a couple of days. James (Crowley) gave a great lecture and found some time to re-acquaint himself with some fine Scottish produce.
Euan was very pleased to give a talk at Steve Goldup and Jon Kitchen’s Supramolecular Syposiusm (unofficially #GoldupSupra) in Southampton in July.
It was a great day of mostly unpublished science, meeting up with old friends, and making some new ones…see here for the full line-up.
Thanks Steve and Jon for the great day…and the photo.
A belated congratulations to Scott, who is funded by the CRITICAT CDT programme and won a prize for his flash summary of his Ph.D. project at the CRITICAT Firbush retreat earlier this month (12-14 June). Not a bad way to start your Ph.D.!

On Friday 19 May – Saturday 20 May the School of Chemistry welcomed Prof. Makoto Fujita (University of Tokyo) as an EaStChem Colloquium speaker. As well as delivering an inspirational lecture on Friday, spanning metallosupramolecular chemistry, self-assembly, and the remarkable crystalline sponge … Continue reading

The whole group made the short journey down to Edinburgh to attend the annual meeting of the RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry interest group on 15-16 December 2016. Guillaume presented a poster titled Improving ligand design for boronate ester mediated dynamic covalent … Continue reading
