Advanced Composite Materials for low Temperature Thermochemical Energy Storage Applications
Department of Engineering of the University of Messina,
The growing energy demand coupled to the stringent requirement to discard the fossil fuels, oriented the energy consumption towards the renewable sources in several real contexts, from building to industrial applications. This addressed new research activities focused to the development of innovative materials for thermal energy storage (TES).
TES technologies are classified into three categories: sensible, latent and thermochemical. Thermochemical ones are a promising solution, able to reach high energy density and to store it indefinitely as long as the components that take part in the reaction remain separate. Among the low temperature thermochemical energy storage (TCS) technologies, the inorganic salt hydrates are widely investigated to overcome the mismatch between energy supply and demand caused by the diurnal nature of solar energy. However, some drawbacks of this class of materials, such as deliquescence, chemical instability, limited mass transfer and corrosion issues, have significantly hindered his extension in application fields. In such a context, new research frontiers oriented toward the development of innovative micro- and nano- structured composite sorbents for TCS applications are growing the interest in this research topic breaking new grounds for this field of research. The purpose of this paper is to give a short overview on the recent improvement on composite materials for low temperature TCS applications.

Lipid bilayers in the bio-nano world: assets and dangers
Carlos M. Marques
Institut Charles Sadron, University of Strasbourg, CNRS, Strasbourg, France
Carlos Marques, a CNRS senior scientist, founded the MCube group at the Charles Sadron Institute in Strasbourg, France, where he geared experimental and theoretical research towards the understanding of the physical properties of self-assembled lipid bilayers. Trained as a polymer theoretician, Carlos first got interested in membranes because they interact with polymers and published the first prediction for the membrane changes expected when polymers adsorb on lipid bilayers. His group grew to include experiments and numerical simulations, and Carlos has now published many papers based on research with giant unilamellar vesicles, including the first study of lipid oxidation in GUVs and the discovery of the so-called PVA method for vesicle growth. Carlos is presently starting a new group in Lyon where he will be expanding the scope of his research towards more complex lipid systems.

Membranes in the biological realm self-assemble from phospholipids and other lipid-bilayer forming molecules. The resulting five nanometers thin (or thick?) structures are so resilient that they play a major role in the organization of life as compartmentalizing cell elements, as substrates for metabolic bio-chemistry and suspectedly for even more elaborate functions yet to be discovered. Self-assembled membranes make up also for a large tonnage of the detergent and cosmetic commodities, and play an increasing role in pharmaceutics.
Wherever lipid membranes are assembled, formulated and transported, they are exposed to interactions with an increasingly larger variety of nano-constituents of their bio or material environment. Understanding what opportunities and difficulties arise by the presence of biomembranes in a nanostructured world is therefore essential for unfolding therapeutical pathways, for increasing performance or simply to prevent health concerns.
In this talk I will illustrate efforts and strategies developed over the past years for valuing the assets of lipid self-assemblies in the bio-nano world and evaluating some of the dangers that membranes face when exposed to interactions with nanoobjects.
