Speakers: Professor Peter Beton, University of Nottingham

The organisation of molecules on a surface can be controlled through the use of hydrogen bonding and other non-covalent interactions leading to a diverse zoo of possible structures including nanoporous layers for templates, random tilings and quasicrystals. Through the modification of these assembly processes the molecules may be linked together by covalent bonds leading to the formation of two-dimensional conducting polymers. These materials may be regarded as analogues of graphene and progress towards their integration with other layered materials to form prototype devices will be discussed.

Talk starts at 7.30pm
