The general aim of this project is to gain new knowledge and a deeper understanding of novel two- and three-dimensional nanometer-sized assemblies of chromophores in terms of construction, characterization, photoinduced or electro-optical properties, molecular recognition and selective catalysis, antiviral and anticancer properties. The specific aim of this project is the construction, via a supramolecular approach, of novel photoactive multi-chromophore assemblies. The supramolecular synthetic strategy, by virtue of its modular and highly flexible nature, will allow to perform the selective variation of the components and investigate their influence on the properties of the final assemblies, while keeping at a minimum the synthetic effort. The ultimate aim of this project is the preparation of new photoactive nanosystems to be used in technological applications. The project will be developed within an extended frame of scientific national and international collaborative networks.
