Reversible Chemistry

The gadget spec URL could not be found

Dynamic covalent chemistry (reversible chemistry) is essential in constructing thermodynamically favored molecular architectures in high yields. We have applied this concept in the sysnthesis of:

Macrocycles: We use reversible alkyne metathesis to avoid the creation of long oligomers. 

3D-Covalent Organic Frameworks: We use reversible boronic acid/ester formation to create periodic framworks.
