Welcome message from Prof. Enrico Dalcanale
We are pleased to present our website. The aim is to offer to the public in general and to prospective graduate students/postdocs in particular, a bird’s eye view of the ongoing activity in our group. I hope this website will stimulate your interest in our research activity.
Mission of the Dalcanale group
The team interests are focused on the design and preparation of functional materials, using self-assembly and molecular recognition tools. Over the years the major themes have been: macrocyclic liquid crystals, self-assembled monolayers and LB films, metal-directed self-assembly of coordination cages, supramolecular sensors and adaptive polymers.
