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.
10.01.2022 Phil has joined our group from the UK. Brexit hasn't stopped him from getting here.
08.01.2022 Our first paper on Shape-Assisted Self-Assembly (SASA) is on chemrxiv.
05.11.2020 We went on our first ever group trip. Two days in Wallis/Valais. Pics here.
25.10.2020 From the Far East PhD-student #4 is on his way to us. 热烈欢迎 Kai! We still have space for BSc and MSc students!
01.10.2020 Our first PostDoc Thomas has joined us from Wien (as soon as he is out of quarantine). Welcome!
14.09.2020 Master Elie, welcome to the fold! Happy to have you on board for an exciting internship.
