Learning Objectives

The aim of the cours is to provide students with the basic tool necessary for understanding the structure and properties of supramolecular aggregates in order to acquire the ability to design and synthesize target supramolecular assemblies

Course Structure

The course is structered in two sections: lectures and lab activity

Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.
