Our group pursues the research on the interface of organic and materials chemistry, targeting on synthesis of new properties in organic materials, particularly those which are revealed on the nanoscale (monolayers or individual molecules).
Our objects are mostly conjugated molecules and polymers with unique electronic properties. For example, thiophene and oligoacene derivatives, short-cut functionalized single wall carbon nanotubes, various strong electron donor and acceptors, low band-gap materials, etc.
The experimental work includes modern organic synthesis, preparation of various nanostructures and state-of-art characterization techniques (spectroelectrochemical studies, surface spectroscopy, scanning probe microscopy, etc.), providing a good diversification of the research training.
