Supramolecular Electronics

We focus our attention on providing a supramolecular-level understanding of charge transport behaviour associated with non-covalent interaction, as well as demonstrating experimental readiness of single-supermolecule electronics for potential applications.

Single-Molecule Reactions

We are attempting to employ the single-molecule technique to demonstrate the importance of electron and electric-field catalysis at single-molecule level, in order to bridge the gap between nanoscale STM experiments and large-scale electrocatalysis.

Single-Molecule Circuits

We are trying to provide a modular design of intramolecular circuits, that enables the construction of fundamental building elements for single-molecule electronics, namely, conductors and insulators.
