The design of new families of nanocarbon materials, from bottom-up approaches (notably for carbon nanorings, CPPs, azafullerenes, and hybrid systems), to chemical and structural modification of existing nanocarbons, such as selective filling of collapsed carbon nanotubes cavities. We are also interested in carbon nanostructure formation processes (such as fullerenes in space), and ways that different nanostructures can be modified (e.g. dislocation cores).
As well as the nanocarbons themselves, we are innovating in ways that nanocarbons can be used as templates, creating previously unknown material phases due to nanoconfinement (for example inside carbon nanotubes).
We rely strongly on computational modelling tools, and local, national and international collaborations.
