[Seminar] "On-Surface Synthesis: What Happens Behind the Scenes?" by Dr. Marco Di Giovannantonio (Institute of Structure of Matter, CNR, Rome)2023-04-25
Title: "On-Surface Synthesis: What Happens Behind the Scenes?"
Speaker: Dr. Marco Di Giovannantonio is responsible of the ESCA laboratory at CNR-ISM (https://www.ism.cnr.it/en/esca.html). He uses a multidisciplinary approach to synthesize and characterize novel low-dimensional carbon-based nanomaterials, and optimize their growth conditions and final properties to employ them in catalysis and organic electronics. (Areas of interest: Nanotechnology, surface science, catalysis, on-surface chemical reactions, organic molecules on surfaces, metal-organic networks, graphene-like nanostructures, graphene nanoribbons, open-shell molecular systems.)
The development of technologies to utilize the earth-abundant metal and organic resources without relying on scarce resources is essential for the sustainable development of modern society. This presentation introduces our recent efforts towards this goal; we have developed sustainable organic synthesis using sodium dispersion, a Mo/quinone species for the diazo-free generation of carbene species from stable and readily available compounds such as carbonyl compounds and cyclopropanes, and a SpiroBpy ligand that enables the site-selective functionalization of arenes under remote steric control.

[Seminar] "Single-molecule fluorescence microscopy" by Dr. Xiaomin Liu (Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Germany)2023-03-08
Title: Single-molecule fluorescence microscopy
Abstract: The research in my group focuses mainly on the development of single-molecule fluorescence microscopy techniques, based on new types of fluorescence dyes and advanced laser systems. Such microscopy techniques could not only provide optical super-resolution imaging with nanometer-scale resolution, but also enable 2D/3D molecular dipole direction probing. Many applications with single-molecule sensitivity, such as material and bio-imaging, surface reactivity and electrochemical reactions, and structure order/disorder/defects investigations, can benefit from it. In this seminar I will give a brief introduction of those related techniques and corresponding applications.
