Research Summary
grey-line-1.jpg

Our research aims to combine inorganic chemistry and nanotechnology for designing water-soluble metallated particles with new applications in catalysis, medicine and nanotechnology. We particularly focus on single-atom-by-single-atom fabrication of metal nanocrystals, and on the experimental elucidation of atomic motion. We also develop innovative nanomedicines combining unusual ligands, precious metals, and polymers.
