Controlled metalation of single phthalocyanine molecules


At the 22th Edgar Lüscher Seminar, in Klosters, Switzerland, Alexander Sperl was awarded a prize for his poster presentation. The meeting covers various aspects of modern physics. Alexander presented the controlled metalation of a single phthalocyanine molecule with the tip of a scanning tunneling microscope. He is currently working towards his Ph.D. in Professor Berndt's group. His research is focussed on single molecule chemistry, which is a key subject of the Sonderforschungsbereich SFB 677.
