The project ACCESS arises from the approval of the Joint Research Project 2023-2024 coordinated by Marco Di Giovannantonio (CNR-ISM) and Akimitsu Narita (OIST, Japan), within the framework of the bilateral agreement between CNR and Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS).
The project focuses on the search for effective strategies for the stabilization of single metal atoms on surfaces, mediated by organic templates. The strength of the project is the interaction between the two units regarding the organic synthesis of molecular precursors (OIST) and the formation and characterization of the obtained nanostructures (CNR-ISM). ACCESS proposes a new approach that combines the study of single atoms, metallorganic chemistry and on-surface synthesis, to identify the most promising strategies that can enable the creation of tunable active sites with many potential applications, especially in catalysis.
