ISMSC: Cram Lehn Pedersen Prize awarded
13 Jul 2011
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.
