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.
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!

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.
