Shape Selectivity in Chem. Sci.

Our manuscript on the 'Shape-Selective Crystallisation of Fluxional Carbon Cages' has just been accepted for publication in Chemical Science. We found that overall molecular shape, rather than any specific noncovalent interactions, controls the preferential crystallisation of shapeshifting barbaralane isomers from dynamic mixtures.

The paper has been selected as Chem. Sci. Pick of the Week and included in the 2018 Chemical Science HOT Article Collection, as well as being featured on the cover of Chem. Sci. 2018, 9, issue 46.

Congratulations to Aisha, who led the team, working together with other members of the McGonigal Group and our colleagues at Durham.
