about us

Our research work is directed towards understanding of self-organization of biological systems that have amazing spatio-temporal control over their self-assembly and functions as well as utilizing the knowledge of supramolecular organization for material applications such as development of novel functional organic and hybrid materials. In our approach for bio-inspired self-assembly with spatio-temporal control, we target chemical fuel such as ATP driven assembly and precisely control the growth, steady state and decay of self-assembly and aim towards controlling the novel functions associated with the steady state assembly that features a unique class of living supramolecular polymerization and transient assemblies. Our group has also been working extensively on the mixed-stack charge-transfer assemblies for electronic functionality with reversible stimuli to control the supramolecular motif and properties such as pore transport and adsorption. We further design solution processable, organic-inorganic hybrids by the co-assembly of ionic dyes and nanoclay particles for properties such as room temperature phosphorescence for OLED applications. We also study the mechanistic aspects of supramolecular polymerization process, to design chirality driven self-sorted supramolecular stacks to control the organization of p-n junctions.
