Chemistry for Molecular Systems

Overview

from biomolecules and rare-earth ions

My research group is broadly interested in self-assembling phenomena and involves identifying problems of fundamental significance in nanochemistry. Our approach involves the synthesis of materials that contain both molecular, biomolecular and inorganic components, and study of their structure and properties by a variety of physical techniques. In general, we use the tools of synthetic and physical organic chemistry to address problems at the interface of chemistry, biochemistry and materials science.
