Research Focus:The Synthesis of Nanoscale Systems

The Synthesis of Nanoscale Systems group uses small and large molecules as nanoscale building blocks for the construction of materials and devices by self-assembly. The assembly of many molecules into complex and dynamic superstructures gives rise to soft materials and chemical systems with emerging properties that are much more than the sum of the components. The group focuses on two main areas of research: biomimetic supramolecular chemistry and surface functionalization by molecular self-organization.
