• DNA Nanostructures

    Unlike almost all other molecules the self-assembly of oligonucleotides can be programmed to fold into predesigned structures with high fidelity. In particular the [...]
  • Organic Synthesis

    With a background in organic synthesis Kurt Gothelf’s research is founded upon organic chemistry and around half of the members in the groups engage in organic synthesis, [...]
  • Templated Synthesis

    DNA-templated synthesis provides the opportunity control chemical reactions with DNA-strands. The reactive groups are conjugated to DNA strands and the reactions performed at [...]
  • Chemistry on Surfaces

    The interfacing of organic and bioorganic materials with solid surfaces plays an increasingly important role in nanotechnology, catalysis and for the development of sensors. [...]
  • Sensors

    The group has a long tradition for making biosensors based on DNA and proteins. The combination of DNA, redox-active molecules and conductive surfaces provides unique [...]
  • Polymers

    Conjugated polymers with a brush of DNA Conjugated polymers, popularly known as synthetic metals, have attracted significant interest due to their spectacular optical and [...]
