DTU Chemistry - Nano Chemistry


NanoChemistry’s research ranges from electrochemistry of molecular monolayers and even single molecules or biomolecules, to new graphene and graphene/nanoparticle hybrid materials.

We use both multifarious advanced experimental methods and theoretical approaches.

Electron transfer is a core notion exploited in the group’s projects in new nanoscale and single-molecule electrochemistry and bioelectrochemistry.

The group has introduced scanning tunnelling microscopy and atomic force microscopy of complex molecules directly in chemical and biological media (in situ STM and AFM), with single-molecule resolution.

We are presently strengthening our research in complex materials combining metallic nanoparticles, graphene and enzymes into hybrid nanomaterials with exciting catalytic perspectives for fuel cells, supercapacitors, sensors, and green energy technology.
