Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Group
The Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Group is one of the RSC's many Interest Groups. The Interest Groups are member driven groups which exist to benefit RSC members, and the wider chemical science community, in line with the RSC's strategy and charter.
This is an interdisciplinary group for chemists interested in any aspect of macrocyclic chemistry or supramolecular chemistry.
The Group holds an annual two-day scientific meeting in December or January and an annual one-day early career scientific meeting the summer. In 2017, the annual scientific meeting was combined with the International Symposium on Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Symposium held in July in Cambridge. Accordingly, the early career meeting will be held in December 2017.
Bob Hay Lectureship
This prestigious lecture is given annually by a younger chemist (within 15 years of the completion of their PhD) working in the area of macrocyclic and/or supramolecular chemistry in its widest sense. The award lecture is given in memory of Professor Bob Hay, one of the pioneers of macrocyclic chemistry in the UK. The award is open to candidates working at an institution in the UK or Eire or who can otherwise demonstrate a strong link to the MASC Interest Group.
RSC Macrocyclic and Supramolecular Chemistry Group Thesis Award
The award is open to doctoral students in the final year of their studies and those who have had their viva and were recommended for the award of a doctorate by their examiners in the 12 months prior to the call for applications. Candidates must have conducted their doctoral studies at an institution in the UK or Eire or be able to otherwise demonstrate a strong link to the MASC Interest Group.
Further information on both awards can be found on our awards page.
