Photoswitchable Supramolecular Cage Allows For Selective Steroid Purification
Recent work from the Nitschke group, published in JACS, has been highlighted by Chemistry World magazine. The research led by Dr. Amit Ghosh and supervised by Prof. Jonathan Nitschke has resulted in the development of a new, light-driven method for progesterone purification from a mixture of similar steroidal structures. This project marks an exciting step forward in the pursuit of greener alternatives to the conventionally employed separation techniques, and the group are eager to maximise the potential of this strategy.
The authors of this work recently spoke with Victoria Atkinson of Chemistry World and the full interview can be read here:
