The Surman Lab is a new interdisciplinary research group based in the Department of Chemistry at King’s College, London, led by Andrew Surman.
Our interests are broad, but centre on Supramolecular Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Systems Chemistry, a fondness for getting computers to do the work, and an affinity for horrible messes which nobody else wants to deal with. We are applying these as tools to solve practical problems (probing heterogenous industrial materials, environmental & medical diagnostics, controlling catalytic systems) and more fundamental questions (e.g. around the Origin of Life, and Supramolecular reaction control).

We're a new group, with a lot in the pipeline, and we'll expand this site as we have more to tell you!
