The Nano Bio Separations Group is a transdisciplinary team that creates barriers for separations and sensing by combinining synthetic membranes with emerging materials and biomolecules. The apparent aim is to develop tunable, highly-selective and versatile interfaces; the underlying driving force is to understand intertactions between molecules and ultimately the concept of selectivity.
Current research topics comprise:
Membranes modified by room-temperature ionic liquids for separations
Oligonucleic acid-functionalized stimuli-responsive membranes
Biomolecules in room-temperature ionic liquids for sensing and separations
Room-temperature ionic liquid based sensors
Membrane separations for microreactor systems
