Charge Transfer

Charge transfer in biomimetic and bioinspired systems

Our research focuses on charge transfer mediated by biomimetic and bioinspired macromolecular and supramolecular systems. Investigations of charge-transfer properties of biomimetic and bioinspired systems will allow us to: (1) elucidate the principles that govern redox processes in biological systems; and (2) develop photoredox materials, based on these principles, for organic electronics and solar-energy-conversion applications.
