New publication in the Journal of Materials Chemistry family

Delighted to share a new publication in Journal of Materials Chemistry C entitled Thionated PDI supramolecular polymers: controlling aggregation mechanisms, morphology and function discussing the effects on self-assembly of heteroatom substitution in supramolecular polymer systems.

These findings are based on work accomplished during Faul group members Henry E. Symons‘ and Maximillian J. L. Hagemann‘s PhD studies. Congratulations to all authors involved.

New accepted manuscript in Chemistry—A European Journal

A new review entitled Design and Control of Perylene Supramolecular Polymers through Imide Substitutions has been accepted in Chemistry—A European Journal. The publication is concerned with perylene-based supramolecular polymers (SMPs) and their exploitable properties achievable via chemical modification of the imide substituents.

Congratulations to all involved with this achievement.

Plenary in Shanghai!

Charl gave a plenary lecture at Donghua University’s 9th International Conference on Advance Fibers and Polymer Materials.

The conference, organised by the State Key Laboratory for Modification of Fibers and Polymer Materials, included a range of contributions from the USA, China, UK, Germany, Japan and Korea (amongst others!).

Charl also had to the opportunity to catch up with Yaozu, Wei (former FRG members now at Donghua), as well as collaborators Prof Hiroshi Kitagawa (Kyoto, Japan), and Dr Samuel Chigome (BITRI, Botswana).
