Life-Like Materials 

Lab

We aim to develop chemistry that introduces life-like behavior in synthetic matter. We study self-organization processes that take place at the 0.1 – 10 mm length scale and emerge from combinations of molecular assembly, chemical reaction networks and physicochemical phenomena such as surface tension gradients. Currently, we are exploring how self-organization of amphiphile networks open new pathways in reconfigurable matter and neuromorphic systems.

We are a team of scientists located at the Radboud University in Nijmegen (The Netherlands). Our lab is embedded in the Institute for Molecules and Materials (IMM).
