Physical NanoChemistry Group

The development of colloid chemistry has been tremendous during the past decades, driven in part by the improvements in colloidal synthesis of nanocrystals and manipulation of nanoparticle surface functionalities with specific molecules. This has granted access not only to exquisite control over the morphology of nanostructures but also to novel multiparticle ensembles with a variety of organizational motifs. The Physical NanoChemistry Group is interested in the development and modelling of colloidal systems and the study of their corresponding properties and correlations with molecular concepts that have been around for a long time (e.g. chirality). Additional thinking along these lines may lead to further expansion of chemistry and to multiple surprising discoveries in this field.
