Nanostructured Molecular Systems and Materials (MSM)

Project Description

Nanostructured Molecular Systems and Materials (MSM)

The group’s research is centered in Molecular Engineering. We 1) Design and 2) Synthesize new functional molecules, from biologically relevant molecules to π-conjugated dyes, 3) Program them with specific supramolecular information, in order to guide their assembly into a given nanostructure, and 4) Study, often in collaboration, how the system properties relate to molecular structure and supramolecular architecture.

Our research interests broadly aim at improving or creating new functions in organic materials by rationally ordering molecules at the nanoscale using the tools of self-assembly. We are focused on the development of new supramolecular strategies for the construction of complex architectures with unprecedented structures, exciting physical and biological properties, and unconventional applications.
