Programming Recognition Arrays through Double Chalcogen-Bonding Interactions
In this work, we have programmed and synthesized a recognition motif constructed around a chalcogenazolo-pyridine scaffold (CGP) that, through the formation of frontal double chalcogen-bonding interactions, associates into dimeric EX-type complexes.
BN‐Patterning of Metallic Substrates through Metal Coordination of Decoupled Borazines
We report on the synthesis of pyridine‐terminated borazine derivatives, their molecular self‐assembly as well as the electronic properties investigated on silver and copper surfaces by means of scanning tunneling microscopy and X‐ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
Bonifazi Research Group
Welcome to the Bonifazi research group at Cardiff University, School of Chemistry. We do research in synthetic organic chemistry to develop supramolecular architectures that, through the exploitation of their peculiar physical and structural properties, can contribute to the demonstration of key functions or basic concepts at the intersection of physical organic chemistry, molecular recognition, materials science and recently biology.
Chalcogen-bond driven molecular recognition at work
Out of the supramolecular toolbox, Secondary Bonding Interactions (SBIs) have attracted in the last decades the attention of the chemical community as novel non-covalent interactions of choice for a large number of chemical systems. Amongst all SBIs, halogen-bonding (XBIs) and chalcogen-bonding...
Welcome to Deborah & Andre!
Welcome to Deborah Romito and André Sequeira! The last PhD students arrived in our group. She is from Italy and she will work on "Chalcogen Bonding as driving force to build an ordered 2D network". He is from Portugal and he will work on photoswitchable self-assembly system using Secondary-Bonding interactions.
