Fundamentals of Self -Assembly
By understanding hydrogen-bond-driven aggregation behaviour of discotic molecules in water and in organic media, we provide a bottom-up approach towards reversible, adaptive biomaterials and materials for opto-electronic applications.
Single Chain Polymeric Nanoparticles
By controlling the global conformation of a single polymer chains we direct the three-dimensional structure of nanometre-sized particles.
Green and Bio-Orthogonal Catalysis
By combining polymer chemistry, catalysis and self-assembly, we make water-compatible nano-compartmentalised structures that facilitate selective and efficient chemical conversions.
