Research containing data collected on Diamond’s Small Molecule Single Crystal Diffraction (I19) beamline has been published in Chemistry – A European Journal and has become one of the ‘Most Accessed’ article in the journal. Calixarene Based Rotaxane Host Systems for Anion Recognition was co-authored by I19’s Principal Beamline Scientist, Dr Dave Allan, and sheds more light on the subject of calixarenes, molecular structural frameworks, and rotaxanes, a kind of molecular machine in the shape of an axle inside a wheel. The topic area has promising biological applications, potentially being used as molecular machines and switches that can be controlled from outside the body.
