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.

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.
