Welcome to my research pages! I am a lecturer at the newly re-opened Department of Chemistry at Lancaster University, developing a research programme in Supramolecular Chemistry.
My primary research interests are in the investigation of Host-Guest Recognition and Self-Assembly. I am looking to build upon the knowledge and expertise I have gained through the study of interlocked molecules and chiral lanthanide complexes, to prepare molecules, complexes or supramolecular assemblies that may act as ever more useful receptors for a variety of ionic and molecular guests.
Further information on my current and past research may be found on these pages, so feel free to explore. “Latest News” may be found below, as well as on Twitter @Supra_Evans, along with some (supramolecular chemistry) views.
Dr Nick Evans
January 2018: Nick starts the new year by presenting at PDB60 (60th Birthday Symposium for Prof Paul Beer) held at the Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford.
November 2017: A paper (with Geoff Akien) on a rotaxane and rotaxane molecular shuttle has been published by Supramolecular Chemistry – an invited contribution for a special issue on Emerging UK Talent in Supramolecular Chemistry. Nick presents a poster at “Synthetic Tools for the Exploration of 3D Pharmaceutical Space” (an EPSRC Dial-a-Molecule network meeting) at the University of York.
October 2017: Emily and Chris join the group as our first ever MChem project students. A mini-review that Nick has written on chiral catenanes and rotaxanes has been accepted by Chemistry – A European Journal.
