Functional Supramolecular Systems - FS2

Project Details


This IAP-PAI network Supramolecular Functional Systems (FS2) will evolve frm the previous network, entitled Supramolecular Chemistry and Catalysis. Supramolecular chemistry describes the chemistry beyond the molecule and studies chemical species held together by non-covalent intermolecular interactions. The aim of the project is to develop novel systemsn, to understand driving forces that allow bi- and tridimensional organisation, to develop methods and tools to investigate, address, manipulate supramolecular structures and exploit their specific properties. A special emphasis will be placed on the functionality of four major supramolecular systems: nanostructured systems, (hierarchically) structured nanoporous materials, (hybrid) biomaterials and thin films.
