The final lecture of the series focuses on self-assembly of complex structures, covering the following topics: (1) assembly of boxes and cages using coordination chemistry; (2) strategies for the synthesis of interlocked compounds and knots; (3) the application of interlocked structures as hosts for small molecules and ions, (4) the effect of mechanical bond on the reactivity of components and (5) controllable molecular motions in molecular switches, machines and materials.
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.
