Four disciplines united under a single roof

Researchers at the Center for Soft Nanoscience (SoN) prepare synthetic materials based on biological models such as addressable nanocontainers or materials that switch their function in response to an external trigger. Besides these fundamental investigations, the high-precision tools required to make and analyze these nanomaterials are developed at the SoN.

New method for molecular functionalization of surfaces

Scientists have presented a new approach in the journal Nature Chemistry, showing that stable and yet very well-ordered molecular single layers can be produced on silicon surfaces - by self-assembly.
