Our inspiration for research comes from the main challenges associated with the technologies of today’s society. We aim at achieving innovation which stems from two perspectives:
- understanding the molecular chemistry effects at the nanoscale; and
- designing nanomaterials and developing catalysts and miniature devices that exploit nanoscale effects.
We are located in the Amsterdam Science Park campus with state-of-the-art synthesis laboratories, a broad range of analytical techniques, including spectroscopic, surface characterization and microscopy techniques. Our group has access to synchrotron facilities (ALS-Berkeley) and cooperates closely with Spark 904, a research-intensive business concerned with chemical analysis and spectroscopy as well as the scale-up of synthesis.
