PhD Opportunity: Synthesis of novel hybrid nanomaterials with macrocyclic receptors for host-guest optical sensing
Project Description Within the last two decades, hybrid nanomaterials have emerged as fundamental building blocks for modern technological and scientific research. In the field of optical sensor technology, constructing hierarchical composite materials of two or more nanostructured domain and implementing appropriate surface modification and molecular binding strategies are important steps needed to construct robust and accurate sensor systems exhibiting high sensitivity, excellent selectivity and rapid response. Supramolecular chemistry offers a wide range of macrocyclic synthetic receptors specifically t...
