Main Role in the Project: The Organic Chemistry group at the Eindhoven University of Technology is performing research on the following topics: Dendrimers and novel architectures, supramolecular chemistry, organics with unconventional electro-optical properties and stereochemistry. Moreover, their achievements are well-known on the field of the self-assembly of supramolecular structures in solution and at surfaces.
