The Cronin Group

Research in the Cronin Group is motivated by the fascination for complex chemical systems, and the desire to construct complex functional molecular architectures that are not based on biologically derived building blocks.

Autonomous protocell division driven by molecular replication

In the latest development of the Cronin Group’s robotics and artificial life research, a paper has been published that links molecular replication to the growth of droplets on the macroscale. The molecules catalyze their own formation which allows the growth of an surfactant which drives growth on the droplet scale. This phenomenon could only be correctly studied by using a chemical robot constructed by the Cronin group.
