Active Molecular Systems

Our aim is to design and create active molecular systems that are inspired by the supramolecular, functional and stimuli-responsive systems found in nature. To this end, we rely on controlling the transmission and amplification of movement across increasing length scales - from the molecular scale and up to the macroscopic level. This research also implies a special focus on chirality, liquid crystals and artificial molecular machines.

Research focus

Our research program is often inspired by complex chemical phenomena observed in biological systems, where molecular machines, motors and switches maintain out of equilibrium states by ingenious coupling with their anisotropic environment.
