Organisation profile

Nanoscale Chemistry is the exciting areas of chemical science and technology where physical and chemical properties of systems addressed depend on their sizes.

The size can range from the single molecule (» 1 nm) to many thousands of molecules (> 100 nm), with almost macroscopic properties. Chemical properties at the nanoscale are different from those in macroscopic, say molar scales. Studies of nanosystems require high-resolution techniques such as electrochemistry at atomically planar surfaces. Molecules in such environments can be studied by the ultra-sensitive microscopies, scanning tunnelling and atomic force microscopy (STM and AFM). We can, literally see the single molecules in action. Such studies are important because they disclose new chemical behaviour different from the known macroscopic world and they offer perspectives for design and chemical synthesis of novel materials for use in electronics and biological screening at ultra-small scales.

DTU Chemistry’s NanoChemistry group offers interesting special course, bachelor, master and Ph.D. projects in different areas of chemistry at the nanoscale listed below.
