Porphyrin-based nanostructures


The aim of this project is the synthesis of new molecular structures based on porphyrins for the formation of 0D, 1D and 2D nanostructures. Porphyrins are an important class of molecules that are essential to life through oxygen transport or photosynthesis. Beyond, their importance in Nature, porphyrin derivatives exhibit outstanding optical, electronic, chemical and electrochemical properties that make them promising candidates for applications in catalysis, electrocatalysis, optoelectronics and medicine.

In this project, the porphyrins will be studied in collaboration with several groups of Physicists in order to fabricate 1D or 2D covalent networks on surface via the "bottom-up" approach and to study their electronic and optical properties.
