Research topics

Our activities are focused on:

  • Preparation and studies of coordination complexes and control of their properties via the use of rigid and semi-rigid ligands,
  • Synthesis of molecular materials based on tetrapyrrolic macrocycles,
  • Energy and electron transfers in supramolecular scaffolds, self-assembled in both solution and on surfaces,
  • Design and study of heme protein models.

Keywords : Molecular materials, Self-assembly, Molecular electronics, Surface organization, Weak interactions,
                   Porphyrins, Cyclophanes.
