Welcome to the Forgan Group Website!

The Forgan Group is based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow. Our research focusses on the development and application of metal-organic frameworks, MOFs, which are porous inorganic-organic hybrid constructs. For more information on our projects involving new self-assembly protocols, biomimetic catalysis and drug delivery, click the Research tab.
