Mesosynthesis @ UVM

To create new artificial antibodies and artificial enzymes

Welcome to the Schneebeli Group

Traditional chemical synthesis has been all about learning how to create small molecules in well-defined predictable ways. But, can the most useful core concepts of chemical synthesis, e.g., selective recognition and catalysis, be scaled-up to the nm and µm range to create larger well-defined compounds for biomedical and energy applications?

We are investigating this question with new bionispired synthetic methodology, fundamentally new ways to synthesize sequence-defined polymers with bioinspired exponential polymer replication, and large organic cages, which can sense toxins in the environment and flavors in food.
