Research in the MacGillivray laboratory is focused on the general field of supramolecular chemistry, or chemistry beyond the molecule, with particular focus on the organic solid state.  We employ noncovalent bonds for the crystal engineering of organic solids with applications in organic synthesis, organic electronics, pharmaceutics, and imaging agents.  Subareas of research are devoted to addressing critical problems related to templated synthesis, ladderanes, metal-organic frameworks, organic semiconductors, and pharmaceutical co-crystals and related materials.
