 Project objective

Chiral surfaces have received considerable attention in the recent past since they play an important role as substrates for chiral separations and enantioselective heterogeneous catalysis. One of the most frequently used approaches to design and fabricate chiral surfaces is the adsorption and self-assembly of chiral or prochiral molecules on surfaces, which can be studied with sub-molecular resolution by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). Thereby, the fabrication of homochiral surfaces is of particular interest. However, a major drawback of this approach is, in particular in view of potential applications, the lack of stability of physisorbed molecules. Therefore, EnSurf aims to use covalent surface modifications as chiral surface modifiers and new experimental approach for the creation of homochirality and enantioselectivity in self-assembling molecular structures at the solid/liquid interface. This interdisciplinary project takes place in the field of surface and interface science and involves aspects of supramolecular chemistry, synthetic chemistry, analytical chemistry and theoretical chemistry. Ultimately, this project will allow the fellow to attain professional independence and a position at the frontier of future academic or industrial research by a combination of hands-on experience in diverse research areas and training in complementary skills.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ENSURF" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
