New reaction for the synthesis of nanostructures
Tarragona, Spain (SPX) Jul 26, 2016
The collaboration between the research groups of professors Pau Ballester and Jose R. Galan-Mascaros at the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ), Dr. Jonas Bjork at Linkoping University and the group of Dr. David Ecija at Institute IMDEA Nanoscience has allowed the development of a new chemical reaction for the synthesis of low-dimensional polymers that can be rationalised as phthalocyanine derivatives. The results obtained have been published in Nature Communications. Surface- ... read more
