题 目：Flexibility, Dynamics and Chemical Reactions in Solids: Molecular Crystals to Framework Materials
Professor of Chemistry
University of Sheffield, United Kingdom
简历：Prof. Brammer obtained his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Bristol in 1983, which was followed by a PhD in Inorganic Chemistry from the same institution in 1987. After a NATO Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of New Orleans (1987-88) and a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York (1989-90), he became an Assistant Professor and subsequently an Associate Professor at the University of Missouri-St. Louis (1990-2001). Since 2001 he has been in Sheffield, first as Reader, but since 2008 as Professor of Chemistry. Research interest: Supramolecular chemistry, crystal engineering, solid-state chemistry, functional crystalline materials, reactions in molecular solids, X-ray and neutron diffraction, computational chemistry
摘要：The talk would describe the studies of three classes of crystalline materials: molecular crystals, 1D coordination polymers and 2D or 3D metal-organic frameworks. In each case the focus would be on understanding dynamic behaviour, guest uptake and release, and chemical reactions involving these materials.
