About the ESiM Project

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.

Project structure

The project has received funding from European Innovation Council (EIC) under grant agreement No 101046364.
