Functional Nano-molecules & Nano-polymers


Molecules are the most important building blocks of matter. They exhibit astonishing precision in the arrangement of atoms and are capable of assembling into functional structures with high complexity and diverse functions. The ability to organize inorganic nanoparticles into molecular-like nanostructures holds great promises to manipulate matter at nanoscale scale and to exploit the emergent optical, electronic, or magnetic properties of nanoparticle ensembles. In this talk, I will present our efforts to the design of functional nanoscale molecules and polymers through directional assembly of nanoparticles and the development of new materials from nano-molecules.


Zhihong Nie is a Professor in the State Key Laboratory of Molecular Engineering of Polymers and Department of Macromolecular Science at Fudan University. He received his Ph.D. degree from University of Toronto in 2008. After a two-year NSERC Postdoctoral experience with Professor George M. Whitesides at Harvard University, he joined the faculty in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2011 and was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in 2017. He is the recipient of NSF CAREER Award, 3M Non-tenured Faculty Award, ACS PRF Doctoral New Investigator Award, etc. His research interests include molecular and nanoparticle self-assembly, biomedical imaging and delivery, programmable soft materials, and microfluidics.
