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.
Best Wishes from the NanoChem team!
The NanoChem lab is now equipped with a m-Trap from Lumicks. This instrument will allow us to extend our investigations by single-molecule force spectroscopy!

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.

Thrilled to share our last work in @J_A_C_S! We designed a molecular tweezer to probe the mechanical strength of donor-acceptor π-interactions by AFM. A great collaboration between the #nanochemULiege group @ULiegeRecherche and @sirfrasersays @NUChemistry https://t.co/5zPbcE3C0D— Damien Sluysmans (@damsluys) November 23, 2020
