Anna Slater's Biography

Anna Slater, Professor of Chemistry and Royal Society University Research Fellow, University of Liverpool

Prof Anna Slater received her PhD in supramolecular chemistry from the University of Nottingham in 2011. Following postdoctoral positions in porphyrin self-assembly and porous organic cage materials she took up a Royal Society-EPSRC Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship in 2016 and a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in 2021, both at the University of Liverpool. She was promoted to Chair of Chemistry in 2022. Anna developed an interest in flow chemistry during her PDRA positions, recognizing that flow technology has a lot to offer the supramolecular chemist; exploiting flow processes for enhanced control of chemistry is now a central theme of her work. Her research interests include molecular materials, enabling technology and organic synthesis and self-assembly.

Molecular materials and supramolecular systems have great potential in separation and sensing applications, but their synthesis and scale-up is challenging because their formation and self-assembly is strongly influenced by reaction environment. We use three approaches to control the formation of 3D molecular species and their assembly into molecular materials: 1) tuning the building blocks; 2) varying the interaction strength between building blocks, and 3) controlling the process by which they are made.

In this talk I will outline the third strategy with our work on porous organic cages (POCs), macrocycles, and organic materials, showing how continuous flow chemistry and non-thermal plasma approaches are useful tools for supramolecular chemists.
