Nanoscopic lateral confinement created on a graphite surface enabled the study of embryonic stages of molecular self-assembly on solid surfaces using scanning tunneling microscopy performed at the solution/solid interface.
We demonstrate spatially resolved multicomponent covalent chemical patterning of single layer graphene using a facile and efficient method.
In this recent paper in J. Am. Chem. Soc., we demonstrate molecular scale imaging of dynamic network switching between covalent organic frameworks in real time.
In this paper, published in Angewandte Chemie, we reveal the possibility to induce or favor the formation of polymorphs, by confining molecules in nanoscale 2D boxes
Proud of our recent publication in J.Am.Chem.Soc. (and "News and Views" in Nature),
Curious about how shaving works at the nanoscale and affects chirality? Find out more in our latest paper.
A network of self-assembled polystyrene beads was employed as a lithographic mask during covalent functionalization reactions on graphitic surfaces to create nanocorrals for confined molecular self-assembly studies.
