The Kretzschmar group is interested in nanoparticles in general and more specifically in their modification and assembly. They are combining their knowledge of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Material and Surface Science, and Molecular Electronics to discover new materials and applications for nanoparticles. The four major research areas they are working in at the moment are:
- Nanoparticles Films,
- Three-dimensional Nanoparticle Assembly,
- Electrochemical Modification of Nanoparticle Surfaces,
- Nanoparticles as Templates
