Humboldt fellowship awarded to Xiaobo Hu


Congrationation to Xiaobo for receiving the prestiguous Humboldt fellowship to conduct a two years research project in the group of Frank Würthner in the field of supramolecular dye chemistry. Because Xiaobo already moved to Würzburg on December first this is a great opportunity to celebrate together with him.

Xiaobo Hu has previously worked on synthetic ion channels (Master thesis at Fudan University in Shanghai, Supervisor Jun-Li Hou) and synthetic foldamers (PhD thesis at the University of Bordeaux, Supervisor Ivan Huc). Now he plans to work on cyclophanes, rotaxanes and foldamers of perylene and merocyanine dyes at our university.
