The Supramolecular Chemistry & Organometallic Catalysis (SupraCat) Lab at K-State
Supramolecular chemistry, organometallic catalysis, metal-organic framework materials, & paper-based analytical devices.
The members of this lab describe ourselves as “molecular architects” - we use the tools of Inorganic, Organic, and Materials Chemistry to construct functional materials using molecules as building blocks. Like architects, we design the supramolecular structure, plan and oversee its construction via the self-assembly of molecular building blocks, and then finally, we decorate the interior of our construct so that it fulfills the purpose for which it was built.
Researchers interested in metal-organic framework materials, organometallic catalysis, organic synthesis, or point-of-care diagnostics (or a combination of any of these) would find a happy home here. Contact Tendai Gadzikwa if you would like to be part of the SupraCat team.
