Our research group is developing the chemistry of low dimensional materials. The research activity deals with the preparation and characterization of nanomaterials with multifunctional properties:
- One-dimensional coordination polymers with electrical properties, and their potential use as “molecular wires”, and the use of coordination polymers of lamellar structure to produce nanometric films and monomolecular thickness [Nature Nano 5 (2010) 110-115; Nature Commun. 4, 1709 (2013); Chem. Soc. Rev. 2010, 39, 4220–4233; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 56, 987 –991 (2017)].
- Two-dimensional materials with a rational chemical design using Covalent Organic Frameworks and Metal-Organic Frameworks: It aims to provide alternative two-dimensional materials using chemical synthesis for a rational design of structures and properties [Adv. Matter. 25, 2141–2146 (2013); Chem Sci. 6, 2553–2558 (2015); Chem Commun 52, 4113-4127 (2016)].
- Two-dimensional materials based on inorganic crystals such as graphene, boron nitride and antimonene: Our aim is to provide novel synthetic routes for the production of suspensions and the characterization of these materials on surfaces [Adv. Matter. 28, 6332–6336 (2016); Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 55, 14345-14349 (2016)].
- Design and synthesis of porous Materials with potential applications in water and energy based on Covalent Organic Frameworks [J. Mater. Chem. A., 5, 17973-17981 (2017); J. Am Chem. Soc. 139, 10079–10086 (2017); ACS Catal. 7, 1015−1024 (2017).].
