How do materials organize into ordered structures? What are the rules that govern self-assembly processes?
We believe that unraveling the fundamentals of self-assembly would allow us to design synthetic systems that present structural and functional complexity even with simple building blocks. It’s all about tailoring interactions and understanding the interplay between processes.
Our main research thrusts are:
1. Studying structure formation in block copolymer films
2. Exploiting the dynamic properties of supramolecular polymers for plastic recycling
