Post-Doc position in materials chemistry/2D materials/photochemistry

The Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires (ISIS) is a highly interdisciplinary and dynamic research institute of the Université de Strasbourg (UNISTRA) & CNRS, founded in 2002 by Prof. J.-M. Lehn (Nobel Laureate in chemistry, 1987), directed by Prof. T.W. Ebbesen during the period 2005–2011, and since January 2012 directed by Prof. P. Samorì. ISIS labs are well equipped … Continue Reading ››

Supramolecular cruise control

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg have shown that artificial supramolecular fibers can be kept in sustained non-equilibrium steady states, similar to a car driving on cruise control. In living systems, chemical fuel is used continuously and waste is removed at the same time. A similar feat was now achieved in an artificial system using … Continue Reading ››

Organic–inorganic heterostructures with programmable electronic properties

Researchers from the University of Strasbourg & CNRS (France), in collaboration with the University of Mons (Belgium), the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Germany) and the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), have devised a novel supramolecular strategy to introduce tunable 1D periodic potentials upon self-assembly of ad hoc organic building blocks on graphene, opening the … Continue Reading ››
