Nanomedicine, “the application of nanotechnology to health” has been growing exponentially in the last two decades. In this regard, multifunctional nano-scaled materials have been developed for applications in fields such as drug delivery, diagnostics, biosensing and bioengineering.
Crystal Engineering (CE) aims at understanding intermolecular interactions in the context of the crystal packing and utilize such understanding in the design and synthesis of new solid-state functional structures with desired physical and chemical properties.
Fluorinated chemicals find widespread use in hundreds of applications, such as anti-corrosion or anti-icing coatings, liquid-repellent textiles, oil/water separation, fire-fighting foams, paints, pharmaceuticals, and surfactants.
Since its discovery, supramolecular chemistry has completely revolutionized the concept of synthesis, allowing for manipulation and production of nanostructured materials based on molecular components held together by noncovalent intermolecular forces.
Welcome to the Laboratory of Supramolecular and Bio-Nanomaterials (SupraBioNanoLab) where we take inspiration from Nature to engineer the self-assembly and self-organization of biomimetic supramolecular and nanostructured materials with applications ranging from crystal engineering to nanomedicine.
