    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Manipulating and understanding matter at the nanoscale describes best the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is entering, a new era, which is described by Jean-Marie Lehn as the era of “complex matter”. Complex matter is the combination of nanomaterials that together give rise to superstructures, “structures beyond nanostructures”. In this thesis, the motivation was to progressively discover and understand molecular interactions that govern nanoscale natural systems and beyond, and the goal was to acquire the ability to design, direct and control complex matter. In this context, supramolecular ligand interactions on nanoparticle surfaces were designed and implemented with an emphasis on biomolecule sensing. Three main topics were addressed:

1. NMR as a tool in Nanotechnology to study reactions and supramolecular interactions between molecules, nanoparticles and biomacromolecules.

2. Supramolecular Orthogonal Interactions at nanoparticle surfaces.

3. Applications of Supramolecular Orthogonal Interactions for biomolecule recognition and sensing.
