CHEM 112. Topics in Supramolecular Chemistry


This course will focus on supramolecular chemistry as related to nanotechnology, logic gates, drug delivery, and novel materials. We will start with the principles of supramolecular chemistry covering the works of the Nobel Prize winner Jean-Marie Lehn considered by some to be the "Father of Supramolecular Chemistry". Major part of the course will focus on unusual DNA structures, DNA assemblies, and DNA-based nanomaterial (including DNA origami) as well as DNA nanomachines. The other part of the course will cover topics selected by students according to their interests.
