The NanoChemistry Group

The NanoChemistry Group research is focused on the physicochemical processing of nanostructured materials (mainly, carbon nanotubes and graphene) either for the fabrication of functional materials (films, fibers, and composite materials), or their integration into optoelectronic and sensor devices. In recent years, our group's research has been devoted to exploring hybrids of nanomaterials with 2-dimensional self-assembled oligoglycine peptide systems denoted as tectomers. This new research line led us to the publication of seminal papers on surface functionalization, drug delivery, and functionalization of transparent silver nanowire electrodes, and to new technology transfer opportunities that resulted in the foundation of the spin-off company Archent Nanotechnologies, Ltd.
