Recreation of the Iconic Photo...
Steven De Feyter took part in a memorable event, celebrating chemistry and the 50th anniversary of the European Chemical Industry Council (Cefic), which took place in the famous Hotel Métropole in Brussels.
Published in Nature
We used scanning tunnelling microscopy to follow in real-time, as bonds form and break, molecule by molecule, the birth and growth of 2D dynamic covalent polymers on a solid support immersed in a reactive solution.
Peeking at early self-assembly events
Nanoscopic lateral confinement created on a graphite surface enabled the study of embryonic stages of molecular self-assembly on solid surfaces using scanning tunneling microscopy performed at the solution/solid interface.
We reveal the superior sensing capability of covalently modified graphene layers for ammonia detection
We report on the detection and stabilization of a previously unknown two-dimensional (2D) pseudopolymorph.
Chemical patterning of graphene
We demonstrate spatially resolved multicomponent covalent chemical patterning of single layer graphene using a facile and efficient method.
Diazonium Chemistry with a Twist
In this paper, published in Nanoscale, we demonstrate that the ascorbic acid mediated dediazoniation of aryldiazonium salts leads to self-limiting growth of monolayers with high grafting densities
