Molecular synthesis for tunable magnetic supramolecular self-assembly
In this project, we will synthesis non-magnetic and magnetic molecules to form two-dimensional magnetic nano-architectures. The non-magnetic molecules will be used to form a host network and the magnetic molecules will be the guest. The magnetic molecules will be derivative of phtalocyanine and porphyrine molecule. These molecules can accept a magnetic atom in their skeleton center. The non-magnetic molecules will be prepared from perylene and melamine derivatives. O, H, N, Cl substituant will be added to the molecules in order they self-assemble into open-networks through hydrogen bonds. Molecular self-assembly and stability (with molecular ratio and temperature) will be investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy.
This molecular system is a model system for organic spintronics.
