Welcome to the Anderson group website!

Our research is in the areas of molecular materials synthesis, supramolecular chemistry, molecular recognition, polymers and dyes. We are based in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Oxford.

We believe that a better understanding of the relationship between molecular structure, molecular function and macroscopic properties will give us the ability to build functional materials on the molecular scale.

For more of an idea of what we do, take a look at our publications. If you would like to come and work with us, have a read of our vacancies page.
