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.

The National Group was given divisional status as of 3 July, 2022 after demonstrating it had sufficient support to be a stand alone division

Our Purpose

The Supramolecular Chemistry Division 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 division will hold national conferences approximately every 24 months
