About the M2N research group
Welcome to the Molecular Materials and Nanosystems (M2N) research group. The M2N group is an interdepartmental research group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), active in the Departments of Applied Physics and Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. It brings together researchers from these two fields and aims at establishing a coherent research and educational program on the physics and chemistry of functional nanostructured organic and inorganic molecular materials and devices.

- 14 December 2023 NWO has granted our proposal Flowganic in the 2023 Take-off autumn round. A recent discovery of extremely stable and easy to synthesize organic redox-active molecules provides new perspectives to the development of organic redox flow batteries for energy storage. In this project, we aim to develop this discovery into a sustainable energy technology, create demonstrators, and identify first commercial products. Also covered by C2W in Chemisch onderzoek stijgt op.
