Welcome

Welcome to the Stoddart Mechanostereochemistry Group Website. We are located in the Department of Chemistry at Northwestern University. We harness molecular recognition and self-assembly processes in template-directed protocols for the synthesis of functionalized and mechanized molecules, prior to their being introduced into integrated nanosystems. The website is oriented towards prospective graduate and postdoctoral students to give them a glimpse of our ongoing research activities as well as ourselves. To learn more about past and present group members, articles published by the group, breaking news and more, we invite you to explore the various sections. To get information on the group leader, please see the Fraser Stoddart section.
