2020 RSC/SCF Joint Lectureship in Chemical Sciences Winner
Professor Paolo Samorì, Chemical Sciences
University of Strasbourg & CNRS
Awarded for pioneering work on the use of supramolecular and nano-chemistry to manufacture multifunctional nanomaterials and devices.
Professor Paolo Samorì’s research strives to address technologically relevant questions with perspectives of applications in everyday life, ultimately contributing to the well-being of citizens and the advent of a true knowledge-based society. This includes the development of wearable, faster and better performing electronics and sensing devices, as well as more efficient energy storage and conversion. He combines chemically programmed low-dimensional nanostructures (including metallic nanoparticles, graphene and related 2D materials) in hybrid multicomponent materials, with each component providing a distinct property, thereby fabricating multifunctional coatings, composites and devices.
