Dr. Anup Mandal has been awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation fellowship

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Anup Mandal has been awarded a highly prestigious Humboldt Research Fellowship by the Alexander von HumboldtFoundation to conduct an independent research project in the Bunescu Lab at the Kekulé Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Dr. Mandal's project will focus on the first-row transition-metal-catalyzed dearomative difunctionalization of arenes to reach molecular complexity.

Plasmon mediated coherent population oscillations in molecular aggregates

The strong coherent coupling of quantum emitters to vacuum fluctuations of the light field offers opportunities for manipulating the optical and transport properties of nanomaterials, with potential applications ranging from ultrasensitive all-optical switching to creating polariton condensates.

Modular Bicyclophane-Based Molecular Platforms

Bicyclophane-based molecular platforms form extended 2D crystalline monolayers after adsorption from solution onto HOPG and contain orthogonal pillars that point towards the supernatant solution phase.

Nanoscale π-conjugated ladders

It is challenging to increase the rigidity of a macromolecule while maintaining solubility. Established strategies rely on templating by dendrons, or by encapsulation in macrocycles, and exploit supramolecular arrangements with limited robustness. Covalently bonded structures have entailed intramolecular coupling of units to resemble the structure of an alternating tread ladder with rungs composed of a covalent bond. We introduce a versatile concept of rigidification in which two rigid-rod polymer chains are repeatedly covalently associated along their contour by stiff molecular connectors. This approach yields almost perfect ladder structures with two well-defined π-conjugated rails and discretely spaced nanoscale rungs, easily visualized by scanning tunnelling microscopy. The enhancement of molecular rigidity is confirmed by the fluorescence depolarization dynamics and complemented by molecular-dynamics simulations. The covalent templating of the rods leads to self-rigidification that gives rise to intramolecular electronic coupling, enhancing excitonic coherence. The molecules are characterized by unprecedented excitonic mobility, giving rise to excitonic interactions on length scales exceeding 100 nm. Such interactions lead to deterministic single-photon emission from these giant rigid macromolecules, with potential implications for energy conversion in optoelectronic devices.
