Porous Framework Materials
Porosity is an intersting feature because it more or less describes void. Consequntly the art of disigning porosity could be understood as the are of designing void. However, voids in …
Soft Porous Crystals
Soft porous crystals (SPCs) can undergo cooperative stimuli-responsive structural transitions that strongly impact the physical properties and pore structure of the crystal. Flexible Metal-organic frameworks are currently considered the prototypical …
Go to Main Page Adsorption describes the adhesion of atoms, ions or molecules from a gas, liquid or solution state (fluid phase) to a surface of a solid (solid phase). …
Molecular Machines are dynamic molecular species that transfer a physical or chemical stimulus into directed motion. The Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2016 was awarded to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, Sir J. Fraser …
Dr Simon Krause is a chemist working at the intersection of organic, inorganic, physical, and materials chemistry. He studied chemistry at the University of Nottingham (UK) and Technische Universität Dresden (Germany). In 2019 he obtained his PhD at TU Dresden under the supervision of Prof Stefan Kaskel in the field of negative gas adsorption of flexible metal-organic frameworks.
From 2019-2020 he worked in the filed of light-driven molecular motors and switches as a Feodor Lynen post-doctoral research fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt foundation in the group of Prof Ben Feringa at the University of Groningen (Nl).
Since 2021 he is a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart (Ger) supported by a Liebig Fellowship researching in the field of framework-embedded molecular machines. If not in the lab you can find him on a lacrosse field, slamming about science or behind a camera.
