Academic Interests

We are studying the crystal structures of various amino acids and peptides, either alone or in complexes with other selected compounds.

We do systematic investigations of the way these molecules interact with each other. In this we become capable of using them as tools in crystal engineering of new classes of organic nanomaterials. These nanomaterials may be used for storageand slow release of bioactive substances by adsorption and desorption, as sensors, artificial receptors, in catalysts etc.

Single crystal X-ray diffraction is our main experimental method, but it is supplemented by a range of different model calculations, ab initio structure prediction,retrieval of information from structural databases and investigations carried out under extreme conditions (high pressure and/or temperature) at the University of Oslo or in cooperation with national and international partners.
