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 birdai??i??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
TheAi??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.
