About the Project

The Thomas group is investigating the host-guest chemistry of redox-active and/or photo-active, self-assembled macrocyclic structures. These systems have been shown to function as novel molecular devices, sensors, and even therapeutic leads. This project will develop this work, to produce supramolecular architectures that recognize biomolecular targets with high-affinity and selectivity and produce binding-induced optical or redox changes within the hosts.
