Welcome to the Constable - Housecroft research group


Our research group is engaged in all aspects of materials containing coordination and supramolecular compounds. Much of the emphasis is upon the design and development of materials which will contribute to mankind achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals designated in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly. Compounds of interest range from simple coordination compounds which can absorb or emit light to coordination networks which can act as hosts for small molecules or behave as active millimetric materials.
