ESR 3: Intrinsically porous MLD coatings (Work Package 1)

Short description of the project

We will aim at the deposition of coatings with intrinsic pores of molecular dimensions. Intrinsically porous MLD coatings will be formed via the combination of rigid building blocks connected by highly directional bonds. In-depth characterization of the porosity via adsorption-based techniques. Both commercially available and customized building blocks accessible via the HYCOAT partners will be used.
