Welcome message from Prof. Enrico Dalcanale
We are pleased to present our new 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 Supramolecular Sensors and Materials Group (SSMG)
SSMG team interests are focused on the design and preparation of functional materials, using the self-assembly approach. 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.
