Supramolecular chemistry – ‘chemistry beyond molecule’ – is an interdiscplinary field of research at the interface between chemistry, biology and physics. Supramolecular chemistry investigates phenomena in which major role is played by weak intermolecular interactions, such as molecular recognition and self-organisation, and therefore is a basis of biology on one side and nanotechnology on the other.

Our major specialty is organic synthesis, which we apply in two major areas: in supramolecular chemistry of anions and in the construction of metal organic frameworks (MOFs) – crystalline coordination polymers having in their crystal structures empty voids of nanoscopic dimensions (cavities, channels, etc. )
