A visit from Chenfeng Ke

chenfengWe have been fortunate enough to have Dr Chenfeng Ke pay us a visit. Chenfeng was a Newton International Fellow in the Davis group, before moving to post-doc with Fraser Stoddart in Northwestern University. He was involved in the Carbohydrate recognition project and played a key role in the discovery of the new anthracene based receptor design (Nature Chem 2012).

Since joining the Stoddart group Chenfeng has found a new way to construct complex multicomponent interlocked molecules by selective acceleration of uncatalysed “click reactions” (Angewandte 2013). The poster for the seminar he kindly gave us is shown below:
