Molecular Cages as Nano-reactors

Research activity will concern the synthesis of new molecular vessels with cavities apt to perform specific reactions.


These systems will be applied as nano-reactors, forcing the reagents to assume specific orientations that promote the formation of unusual regio-isomers as the products, or as nano-catalysts. Alternatively, nano-vessels will be tested as supramolecular protecting groups, which stabilize reactive compounds by incorporation within their cavity.
