The Rickhaus Lab - Shaping Polyaromatic Systems
Our small group is based in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Zurich, 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.
27.10.2022 We will be moving to Geneva next summer and are looking for PhD candidates. Apply now!
07.10.2022 We welcomed Silvia to our group as a PostDoc, joining from the Peña Group in Santiago, Spain, and Rachele returns to begin her Master's work under the supervision of Lucía.
21.09.2022 Lucía, Joe and Michel publish a mini-review on 2D supramolecular materials in Organic Materials. Read it here: https://www.thieme-connect.com/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/a-1932-0463
