Our research

The theme of the Neville research group is to strategically design and synthesize functional metallosupramolecular materials.

  • We synthesize coordination materials ranging from discrete dinuclear, square grid, cage complexes to polymeric 1-D chain, 2-D layered and 3-D framework materials.
  • We use an array of structural characterisation tools (X-ray diffraction) combined with physical property analysis to understand structure-function properties.
  • A particular focus of the group is to exploit the flexibility of the molecular building block approach to develop new molecular switching materials.
