Dial-a-Molecule is an EPSRC funded Grand Challenge network with the vision that:
“In 20-40 years, scientists will be able to deliver any desired molecule within a timeframe useful to the end-user, using safe, economically viable and sustainable processes.”
The Dial-a-Molecule network builds on three interrelated themes to provide a coordinated and cross-disciplinary approach to address the Grand Challenge: Lab of the Future & Synthetic Route Selection, A Step Change in Molecular Synthesis and Catalytic Paradigms for Efficient Synthesis. Publications in the Dial-a-Molecule thematic series will span the focus areas within these main themes, and serve to summarise the state of the art and highlight the latest developments being made towards realising the Grand Challenge.
