Sensors Group
The SensorsGroup at the University of Rome Tor Vergata joins people at the Department of Electronic Engineering and the Department of Chemical Science and Technology with the main mission of studying and developing innovative sensors and sensor systems ready for applications.

Group Leaders
Roberto Paolesse
Corrado Di Natale

Research topics
Chemical sensors, Artificial Olfaction and Taste, Data Analysis, Electronics for sensors

Chiral Molecular Assemblies group
Our group focuses on the fine control of nano-micro nanostructures based on molecular self-assemblies. We aim at understanding the fundamental mechanism of the nano-chiral or periodic assemblies and the parameters which controls their morphologies and dynamics.

Supramolecular Chemistry Group

The Supramolecular Chemistry group at the Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology of Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia) aims synthesis of chiral hosts, design of supramolecular conjugates consisting of recognition and signaling functions, and study of chiral recognition properties in solution phase.

Group Leader

Victor Borovkov 
Dzmitry Kananovich 
Lukas Ustrnul 
Research topics
Chirality, Host-guest and Supramolecular chemistry, Hemicucurbiturils, Porphyrins, Dynamic covalent chemistry, Spectroscopy

Supramolecular Chemistry group
Our group is focused on structural analysis of complex supramolecular complexes and assemblies and ab initio absolute structure determination of chiral enantiopure molecules and complexes using single crystal X-ray crystallography, mass spectrometry and NMR spectrometry  We work at the interface between synthetic chemistry, structural chemistry and supramolecular materials science and aim to the understanding of the weak intermolecular interactions which are responsible for the recognition, catalytic or self-assembly properties observed in the target compounds/materials.

Group Leader
Kari Rissanen


Research Topics

Single Crystal X-ray Crystallography, Crystal Engineering, Weak Intermolecular Interactions, Hydrogen Bonding, Halogen Bonding, Anion binding, Coordination Chemistry, Molecular & Subcomponent Self-Assembly, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, UV-Vis spectroscopy, Synthetic Supramolecular Chemistry

Senge Group, Organic Chemistry

The group at Trinity College Dublin uses synthetic organic chemistry to study all aspects of tetyrapyrrole chemistry and biochemistry. In the INITIO project we prepare porphyrin-based receptors and catalysts for the binding, identification and activation of small molecules.
