Molecular Materials

Molecular Materials (Molmat) group is located at the Nanotalo building in the Otaniemi campus area. Molmat is a multidisciplinary research group consists of physicists, chemists and biologists aiming at functional materials based on supramolecular and supracolloidal self-assembly and its hierarchies. Currently, we are engaged in the bio-mimetic self-assembly with special emphasis on nacre and silk mimetics.

HYBER

The Molmat group is a part of HYBER, the Academy of Finland´s Centre of Excellence in Molecular Engineering of Biosynthetic Hybrid Materials research (2014-2019), led by Professor Ikkala.

Nanomicroscopy Centre (NMC)

Molmat is also a part of the Nanomicroscopy Center administered by Professor Janne Ruokolainen. NMC is a cutting-edge  microscopy facility offering us a number of high-resolution imaging and fabrication tools for soft, hard and biomaterial characterization.
