The first lecture starts with an introduction to the definition and key concepts of supramolecular chemistry. Historical development of supramolecular chemistry including work of Cram, Lehn and Pedersen in cation coordination chemistry is presented. Thermodynamics of molecular recognition and important concepts such as solvation, chelation and pre-organisation are discussed. Common intermolecular forces that operate in supramolecular systems, such as hydrogen bonding, electrostatic interactions, van der Waals interactions and solvophobic interactions are illustrated using selected examples from the literature. This lecture also covers analytical techniques used to characterise the structures of supramolecular systems and measure the strength of molecular interactions.
Philip A. Gale received his BA (Hons) in 1992 and his MA and DPhil in 1995 from the University of Oxford before moving to the University of Texas at Austin where he spent two years as a Fulbright Scholar. In 1997 he returned to the Inorganic Chemistry Laboratory at Oxford as a Royal Society University Research Fellow. He moved to a Lectureship at the University of Southampton in 1999 and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 2002, Reader in 2005 and to a Personal Chair in Supramolecular Chemistry in 2007. In 2014 he was awarded a Doctor of Science degree by the University of Oxford and in January 2017 he moved to the University of Sydney to take up the position of Professor of Chemistry and from April 2017 Head of the School of Chemistry. His research interests focus on the supramolecular chemistry of anionic species and in particular the molecular recognition, sensing and lipid bilayer transport of anionic species. Transmembrane anion transporters have potential applications in the development of future treatments for cystic fibrosis and cancer.
