BSN Seminar hosted by Dr Etienne Baranoff

After a general introduction, the talk will be in two parts. The first will consider liquid crystals arising from systems where there is hydrogen bonding, halogen bonding or both. Strength and lability of halogen bonds will be discussed before presenting results from crystal engineering studies where both hydrogen and halogen bonding are present – the motifs found are low-molar-mass analogues of in vivo halogen bonding environments. The second part of the talk will discuss liquid-crystalline ionic liquids (LC-ILs) and will focus in particular on recent results where the liquid-crystalline nature of the ionic liquid has been shown to have a direct influence on the outcome of a reaction performed using the LC-IL as solvent.

This talk is part of the School of Chemistry Seminars series.
