is the exciting areas of chemical science and technology where physical and chemical properties of systems addressed depend on their sizes. The size can range from the single molecule (» 1 nm) to many thousands of molecules (> 100 nm), with almost macroscopic properties. Chemical properties at the nanoscale are different from those in macroscopic, say molar scales. Studies of nanosystems require high-resolution techniques such as electrochemistry at atomically planar surfaces. Molecules in such environments can be studied by the ultra-sensitive microscopies, scanning tunnelling and atomic force microscopy (STM and AFM). We can, literally see the single molecules in action. Such studies are important because they disclose new chemical behaviour different from the known macroscopic world and they offer perspectives for design and chemical synthesis of novel materials for use in electronics and biological screening at ultra-small scales.
DTU Chemistry’s NanoChemistry group offers interesting special course, bachelor, master and Ph.D. projects in different areas of chemistry at the nanoscale listed below.
Welcome to the homepage of Department of Chemistry’s Group of Bioinorganic and nanoscale Chemistry.
We offer the following research and student training programmes:
Chemistry and physics of metal ions in biological systems such as metalloproteins,
metalloenzymes and DNA. This is important because more than one third of all proteins
contain metals such as iron, copper or zinc without which the proteins could not work.
Studies of these important and exciting molecules at a level where we can see the single
molecule in direct chemical or biological action.
Work towards biosensors and other interesting devices where we can make the single
molecules do interesting things that we want them to do.
