Nanotechnology and Materials Science
Research in Sukenik’s lab focuses on understanding the chemistry of ordered organic assemblies with an emphasis on self-assembled monomolecular films. There are a number of important applications of this thin film chemistry to problems in biomaterial design, biosensors, and nanoscale devices.
Sukenik and his group are exploring various approaches to the surface modification of implantable materials that are aimed at control of biocompatibility and implant integration. To this end, thin film monolayer assemblies provide a structurally well-defined means of changing surface properties of materials without altering their bulk properties. Both organic and inorganic thin films have been developed as tools for controlling the surfaces of both metals and polymers.
