In Celebration of Andrew D. Hamilton’s Career in Chemistry

Professor Andrew D. Hamilton FRS

We are delighted to present an on-line collection of articles dedicated to Professor Andrew D. Hamilton FRS, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. 

Students and colleagues past and present have come together to contribute over 40 communications, full papers, feature articles and perspectives of some of their latest work now published in ChemComm, OBC, MedChemComm and RSC Advances.

“An insight into the rise of a star in molecular recognition, ground breaking discoveries, and on a more light-hearted note, some fond reminiscences of research in Cambridge, Princeton, Pittsburgh, Yale and Oxford.”  

Read the introductory Profile article by guest-editors Sam Thompson and Andrew J. Wilson, with the contribution of Sir Alan R. Battersby.
