The Bolliger Group's research aims to establish novel methodology involving self-assembly and non-covalent interactions as tools for organic synthesis.

We are particularly interested in the following areas of research:


  • Organocatalysis, Supramolecular Catalysis & Transition Metal Catalysis
  • Development of Self-Assembled Bifunctional Catalysts
  • Sustainable Catalysis

Organic Chemistry

  • Stereoselective Synthesis & Catalysis
  • Development of Synthetic Methodology involving Non-Covalent Interactions

Supramolecular Chemistry

  • Supramolecular Chemistry and Dynamic Covalent Chemistry
  • Self-assembly and Non-Covalent Interactions
  • Encapsulation and the Hydrophobic Effect

Mechanistic Investigations

  • NMR Spectroscopy, including in situ NMR Methods
  • Molecular Modelling
