Welcome to the Ulijn Group website. Our lab is focused on the use of simple versions of the molecular building blocks of life to produce materials and systems with controllable structural, photonic, electronic, and biological properties. These properties open up wide-ranging applications in energy, biomedicine, environmental protection, food, cosmetics, and personal care. [Group Members and Full Biography]
Ulijn Group at ASRC
The Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at the Graduate Center, CUNY, is a 200,000-square-foot facility in upper Manhattan that promotes collaborative, cutting-edge science research in five areas, including nanoscience. Its state-of the-art cleanroom and imaging and surface science facilities support nanoscale research that has broad implications for fields such as medicine, electronics, energy, and industry.
Pathway-dependened electronic wires by active incorporation of amino acids
Mohit's latest paper in Nature Chemistry demonstrates the use of amino acids as chemical signals to enable the active editing of a self-assembling semiconducting structure, which results in temporal control over nanostructures and consequent transient electronic conductivity. The work will be of potential use in interfacing electronics with biological system.
