Scope of Symposium

This symposium is focused on molecular and architecture design of hybrid nanomaterials with biological moieties (such as DNA, peptides, sugars) and its applications. The unique recognition ability of biomolecules has been found in the design of numerous advanced functional material structures from molecular to supramolecular/block assemblies of well-defined 3D sizes/shapes with useful chemical/physical/biological properties.

• Biohybrid nanomaterial assembly and design via DNA, peptides and polysaccharides

• Biohybrid macromolecules and sol-gels

• Layer-by-layer biohybrid nanomaterial designs

• Viral biohybrid nanomaterials

• Functional biohybrid nanomaterials for biomedical and environmental applications
