Energy storage in molecules

  • The European Pathfinder Open project ESiM aims to use intramolecular properties (rotations, conformational changes) for energy storage.
  • ESiM investigates storing (and releasing) of energy in a few specific intramolecular degrees of freedom.
  • The project combines theory and simulation, molecular design and synthesis, scanning probe microscopy and manipulation, solid-state physics and nanotechnology.
