We are interested in the development of novel, polymerisable receptors tailored to the recognition of specific target compounds of biological interest. We use UV/fluorescence/NMR titration experiments to measure the strength of monomer-template interactions in solution and have access to a range of analytical and characterisation techniques used in the evaluation of polymer performance. These include HPLC (UV/RID), IC, SPE, UV-Vis, NMR (2x 400MHz, 600MHz), MS (incl. MALDI-TOF), FT-IR, Raman, optical and IR microscopy, SEM, TEM and N2 adsorption (BET).
