The Rickhaus Lab - Shaping Polyaromatic Systems 

Our small group is based in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Geneva, where we join organic synthesis with supramolecular chemistry through molecular topography. What we don't know, we learn. What we can't learn, we create!

We aim to gain a fundamental understanding of carbon-based non-planar morphologies, their dynamic behaviour and the rules that govern supramolecular order. This will give us the ability to build functional materials from the molecular scale. More details on our research mission here.

For more of an idea of what we do, take a look at our publications. If you would like to come and work with us, have a read of our vacancies page. Like graphics? Find some here.
