(337) When molecular science meets 2D materials: orchestrating multiple functions
Seminar: (337) When molecular science meets 2D materials: orchestrating multiple functions
Speaker: Prof. Paolo Samorì, ISIS, Université de Strasbourg & CNRS, France
Time: 2018-11-27 14:00 to 2018-11-27 15:00
Venue: Meeting room (406), Building 24
Organizer:

Abstract: During the last decade the scientific community has witnessed a tremendous progress on the production and properties optimization of 2D materials for numerous technological applications in opto-electronics, energy (generation and storage), photonics, etc. Next major steps forward from both fundamental and more technological viewpoint require the fine tuning of the properties of such extraordinary materials, in view of the specific applications. Such a modulation can be achieved by combining the unique characteristics of the single layers with the virtually-infinite variety of molecular systems each holding specific properties, thereby developing advanced hybrid materials exhibiting enhanced or novel functions for the chosen applications.

 

In my lecture, I will review our recent activity on the covalent and non-covalent functionalization of layered materials with ad hoc (macro)molecules in order to create artificial responsive hetero-structures as well as functional foams and coatings which can operate as selective chemical sensors. I will describe how the same approaches can be exploited to fabricate highly sensitive pressure sensors which can monitor heartbeats, thus holding great potential for their integration in medical diagnostic devices or sport apparatus.

 

Overall my lecturewill show the disruptive potential of chemical approaches to generate smart 2D materials-based hybrid systems with tailored made properties to address societal needs in electronics, sensing and energy applications.
