FUNCTIONAL NANOMATERIALS & SURFACES

Functional Nanomaterials & Surfaces
Group

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

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.
