Directed Assembly


Directed Assembly is an EPSRC-funded Grand Challenge network aiming to gain unprecedented control of the assembly of molecules that are the building blocks of many functional materials, consumer and industrial products.

The aim is to understand the assembly of the very small, and through this to explore the methods that will allow production of new types of useful materials at a whole range of length scales from the nano-scale to the everyday.

Publications in the Directed Assembly article collection will span the focus areas within this theme, and highlight the latest developments being made towards realising the Grand Challenge.

Edited by: Dr Julian Rose, Professor Paul Raithby and Professor Harris Makatsoris.

    Using crystallography, topology and graph set analysis for the description of the hydrogen bond network of triamterene: a rational approach to solid form selection

    This study has demonstrated the use of crystallography, topology and graph set analysis in the description and classification of the complex hydrogen bonded network of triamterene. The aim is to give a brief o...
