3. Self-assembly based control of nanoengineered materials

We exploit (A) molecular nanomaterial self-assembly with tunable and reversible chemistry to develop dynamic materials controllable by molecular self-assembly.

We recently revealed (B) the tuning of organometallic nanomaterial self-assembly based on ligand-cation coordination that allows reversible cell adhesion and immunoregulation.
