Our research is focused on the design, synthesis, characterization and possible applications of new supramolecular systems with unconventional properties and functions. By combining principles of synthetic and physical organic chemistry with challenges in materials and life sciences, we study the self-assembly and self-organization of molecular architectures into functional supramolecular systems.


On May 21st, Bert Meijer received the Van 't Hoff Medal for his outstanding and groundbreaking work in chemistry. Congratulations to Bert for this wonderful achievement!

On May 12th, Ghislaine Vantomme was nominated for the Groundbreaking Research Award during the TU/e Research DayPhotography by Bart van Overbeeke.

A special issue of Materials Horizons in honour of Seth Marder, including our publication "Tuning the donor–acceptor interactions in phase-segregated block molecules".

Behind the paper: a blog post by Elisabeth Weyandt about our recent publication on dilution-induced supramolecular polymerization of porphyrins.

On December 2nd we celebrated Dutch Sinterklaas with presents and pepernoten, Sinterklaas even visited our group!

On November 30th 2021, Sandra Schoenmakers has successfully defended her PhD thesis titled "Supramolecular Polymers under the Magnifying Glass". Congratulations Dr. Schoenmakers!

Shikha Diman presented her work on multivalency induced clustering at the Women Interactive Materials Award, the jury awarded her with a 3rd place. Congratulations Shikha!

On September 17th 2021, Elisabeth Weyandt has successfully defended her PhD thesis titled "Controlling the length of supramolecular polymers". Congratulations Dr. Weyandt!

Beginning of September we visited Friesland for our group retreat, which included a very interesting 'bird talk' from professor Theunis Piersma. 

On February 27 & 28 2019 we had the Meijerlab Reunion, to celebrate Bert's birthday and to look back on 30 years of research of the group in Eindhoven. The scientific program with an overview of all speakers can be found here.
