Scope of the session

Nanoscale systems are now included at the forefront in the area of coordination chemistry; systems with targeted physical and chemical properties are designed and investigated leading to useful functions. Applications span different technologies from health to chemistry and physics to electronics and information storage. The objective of the session “Coordination chemistry at the nanoscale: functional nanoparticles and nanosheets” is to gather researchers focusing on the creation and investigation of the chemical and physical behavior of nanoscaled coordination systems with potential applications. Nanoscaled coordination systems include: (i) coordination network nanoparticles, (ii) coordination network nanosheets and (iii) thin films of coordination molecules. Potential applications are in catalysis, drug delivery, magnetic and/or optical imaging, information storage, energy creation/storage (solar cells, secondary batteries, capacitors), thin film devices (thin film transistor, piezoelectric devices), separations, chemical storage and sensing. The session focuses on the following aspects: – Design and creation of coordination chemistry nanoparticles, – Design and creation of nanosheets, – Design and creation of nanoscale objects such as nanotubes, oxides or metallic particles, decorated with coordination networks or coordination complexes, – Physical properties of functional coordination particles and nanosheets for different applications – Devices based on nanoscaled coordination systems
