Functional Nanomaterials & Surfaces

The group interests relate to the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology, particularly the areas of molecular electronics, molecular magnetism and biology. We design molecular systems capable of providing inputs at the nano-scale and focus our efforts in the control and organization of such species on different surfaces/nanodevices. The main areas of expertise are

  • Synthesis of functional molecules/polymers & supramolecular aggregates
  • Characterization of our molecular-based materials
  • Surface studies


BCN, 27 SEPT 2019: The ICMAB, at the European Researchers’ Night with “Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers”

On Friday, 27 September 2019, most European countries and cities celebrate the European Researchers’ Night: an event in which science professionals bring their work closer to citizens through multiple public events. The goal is to show the diversity of research fields and the impact that science has on our daily lives. Some ICMAB researchers will give talks at CosmoCaixa, we also organize a workshop on nanomedicine and… you will be able to see the dramatised lecture “Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers” in CosmoCaixa! Don’t miss it!


This initiative, promoted since 2005 by the European Commission’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) programme, has been joined by more than 371 European and some non-European cities. In 2018, 21,850 science professionals and more than 1.5 million attendees participated in the Researcers’ Night. 

ICMAB researchers are participating this year with many activities in the “Nit Europea de la Recerca”. At BuscaCiència Website you can check the whole programme.

Supramolecular block copolymers incorporating chiral and achiral chromophores for the bottom-up assembly of nanomaterials
Marta Riba-Moliner, Cristina Oliveras-González, David B. Amabilino, and Arántzazu González-Campo*

Incorporation of chiral and achiral Zn-porphyrins can block copolymers via
axial metal coordination for supramolecular hybrid materials. The supramolecular organization and possible chirality transfer to the hybrid materials
have been studied in solution and solid state.
