Workshop 1

Nanoscale Bio-Hybrid Materials

Tuesday, May 3, 2005
Location: Bldg. 402, Room E1100/E1200

Organizer: Tijana Rajh, Chemistry Division, Argonne National Laboratory

Future breakthroughs in nanoscience and nanotechnology are anticipated to be founded on the creation of new classes of functional materials that incorporate tuned nanoscale architectures and biologically active molecules, offering opportunities in diverse applications ranging from quantum computation, energy, and advanced medical therapies. The workshop focuses on exploring energy and charge transfer in nontraditional electronic materials ranging from supramolecular to biomolecular assemblies (such as DNA and proteins). Special focus will be on hybrid materials that combine robustness and reactivity of nanocrystalline materials with molecular recognition and selectivity of biomolecules, allowing for controlled reactivity and special positioning of hybrid materials with biological specificity.
