Supramolecular Chemistry National Group

The Supramolecular Chemistry group was established in 2019 to support RACI members working in this relatively young discipline area. Supramolecular chemistry has been defined by Chemistry Nobel prize winner Jean-Marie Lehn as ‘chemistry beyond the molecule’ and encompasses elements of all of the sub-disciplines of chemistry from synthesis to analysis.


Our purpose


The Supramolecular Chemistry group aims to support all members by:

  • Providing networking opportunities for all chemists working in this field
  • Disseminating key research findings in the field by hosting symposia and conferences
  • Encouraging students to work in the field of supramolecular chemistry
  • Providing a ‘home’ for supramolecular chemists who don’t always feel they belong to the established Divisions of the RACI



Regular Events 


Annual one-day student-focused symposium on supramolecular chemistry The group will hold national conferences approximately every 24 months
