Dr Edkins’ group work in the field of supramolecular pharmaceutics and molecular recognition towards understanding the factors leading to multiple crystal forms.
We are especially interested in the appearance of pre-nucleation clusters in solution before crystallisation as well as the impact of molecular shape on the solid-state landscape. We apply a plethora of solid-state analytics along with solution spectroscopy and neutron scattering techniques to fully understand the solid state towards the formation of polymorphs, solvates/hydrates and co-crystalsFind out more
