Welcome to the Angel Martí research group webpage at Rice University Department of Chemistry. We use inorganic chemistry, photochemistry, spectroscopic and molecular biology techniques to study problems in chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, nanotechnology and medicine.

Some of our current projects involve:

  1. 1.The design and synthesis of multifunctional molecular constructs for the treatment and diagnosis of amyloid forming diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

  2. 2.Immobilization of single-walled carbon nanotubes in the surface of porous silicate materials.

  3. 3.Aided dispersion of single-walled carbon nanotubes by metal complexes and the study of photoinduced electron transfer reactions between metal complexes and carbon nanotubes.

  4. 4.Design of probes for the detection and monitoring of DNA and mRNA in different media. This includes the use of hybridization probes with an oligonucleotide sequence complementary to the target sequence of interest, and a fluorescent reporter group capable of changing its photophysical properties upon binding to the target sequence.
