ISMSC: Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize awarded

Professor Amar Flood delivered the inaugural Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize lecture at at the 6th International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry (6-ISMSC) in Brighton last week. The lecture, entitled ‘Binding and releasing anions with CH hydrogen-bonded receptors’, discussed his group’s efforts to regulate chloride concentrations in solution using aryl-triazole foldamers bearing azobenzene units. The foldamers can reversibly bind and liberate chloride depending on the wavelength of light shone on them.
The prize was sponsored by ChemComm and Dr Robert Eagling, ChemComm Editor, presented the certificate to Professor Flood.

You can read some of Professor Flood’s recent research in the recent supramolecular chemistry web theme issue:
Two levels of conformational pre-organization consolidate strong CH hydrogen bonds in chloride–triazolophane complexes
