Dimos Konstantinos

His research interests focus on the synthesis and characterization of molecular materials and specifically on the following topics:

  • Carbon dots and fluorescent inks and filaments
  • Production of graphene-based conductive inks and pastes for printed electronics
  • Hybrid materials based on carbon nanostructures (graphene, fullerene, porous carbon structures) for gas storage, optoelectronic and environmental applications
  • 2D materials and low-dimensional semiconducting systems
  • Development and functionalization of synthetic porous silica materials, periodic nanoporous organosilicates, synthetic zeolites and phyllomorphous materials for catalytic and environmental applications
