Our COST Action is nearing its end.
The final conference was held in February 2015.

The final publication of our Action takes the form of a web themed collection “Supramolecular Chemistry in Water
published in Organic & Biomolecular Chemistry (OBC):  Link

Who we are

Welcome to the website of Supramolecular Chemistry in Water. This website should be regarded as an adjunct to those of the COST Organisation itself ( http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/cmst/Actions/CM1005). If any discrepancy is found between this site and the official COST office web pages the latter should be deemed to take precedence.

This programme (supported by the COST Office through the auspices of the European Science Foundation) aims to promote cooperation to develop supramolecular systems that function in water and that can either monitor environmentally or biologically relevant species, control selectivity of reactions, or produce self-assembled  organized structures.

This CMST Action, CM1005, has been approved by CSO on 02/12/2010.

Entry into force:        17/01/2011
Start of Action:          31/03/2011
End of the Action      30/03/2015
