NanoChemistry & Molecular Systems
The group of Prof. Anne-Sophie Duwez
Using the Atomic Force Microscopy to study the operation of small synthetic molecules...
...one molecule at a time!
Our research is concerned with the development of probes and technologies to interface single small functional molecules with AFM. For 15 years, we have developed the first examples of single-molecule force spectroscopy on small synthetic molecules to study their operation.
Sandrine defended her work on the study of bimolecular G-quadruplexes by means of AFM.
Congratulations Dr Sandrine Hubert !

Prof. Anne-Sophie Duwez is the second researcher we would like to highlight in our #WomenInAFM series. She has spent the last decade pioneering single-molecule mechanics on synthetic molecular machines - read her most recent paper here: https://t.co/8oj1r44EcK #AFMCommunity #afm pic.twitter.com/ivXZsO0ZkX— NuNano (@NuNanoLtd) November 15, 2021
Check out the last publication of #nanochemULiege in @Chem_CP! An elegant work by F. Devaux showing the mechanical properties of small synthetic helices by #AFM. Nice collaboration with I Huc @LMU_Muenchen @XuesongLi_ and F Zerbetto. https://t.co/tT1nbVhTv7 @ULiegeRecherche pic.twitter.com/xLMDWZOiCJ— Damien Sluysmans (@damsluys) March 26, 2021
The shuttling motion in a hydrogen bonded rotaxane is investigated by AFM at the single-molecule level, revealing a weak-binding intermediate state not discernible by ensemble techniques @damsluys @ProfDaveLeigh https://t.co/TRp9iuuPOf pic.twitter.com/rIBRgEfFzl— J.
