Welcome to MD Lab


We are interested in synthesis of laterally size controlled 2D single/thin-layer molecular assemblies by chemical synthesis/possessing (top-down/bottom-up method) from their corresponding precursors such as single molecular unit, single crystals etc. Followed by, we will explore the supramolecular application of these assemblies especially in molecular recognition such as protein, DNA and macromolecular interaction. The success of supramolecular application of various layered assemblies depends on the ability to fabricate surfaces with different functional groups by organic ligand synthesis which will be useful tools for molecular recognition. Following the synthesis, stabilization and surface fictionalization of layered assemblies, we want to explore the various supramolecular applications including, but not limited to, molecular recognition, sensing and catalytic applications.
