Please us this disscussion to describe what context you use azobenzene in.

I use azobenzene based surfactants to make Self Assembled Monolayers on gold. I have experience in both the sysnthesis of these surfactants and there application to SAMs.

I am making single-molecule photoswitches of azobenzenes. Since they can change conformation with light and trans is nearly 100 times more conducting compared to cis, it is very good candidate for future single-molecule opto-electronics devices.


Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
