A short presentation of the CNMN research activity
The improvement of the life quality and the health and safety of people and the industrial development of novel products and technologies – they all have the fabrication of novel materials with novel functionalities and improved properties as a starting point.
This aim is served by the research activity of the teams working within the National Center of Micro and Nanomaterials (which is part of the Department of Science and Engineering of Oxide Materials and Nanomaterials of the Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest), as the proposed research programs are
focusing on the development of breakthrough multifunctional materials, nano or microstructured, which combine oxide, organic, polymeric, or metallic materials and have pre-established properties.
The proposed research activity is comprehensive by including the synthesis, processing, characterization, modeling, and validation of the novel multifunctional materials.
The main research directions aimed include:
- modern oxide nanopowders synthesis methods;
- synthesis and characterization of nanostructured oxide, polymeric, and composite biomaterials;
- nanostructured ceramics with high-performance thermomechanical and electric properties;
- oxide nanopowders, nanocrystalline ceramics, and nanostructured films with photoelectric properties;
- eco-friendly ceramic materials with high-performance electric properties;
- micro and nanostructured multiferroic ceramic and composite materials with magnetoelectric coupling;
- synthesis and properties of aromatic carbonyl-metal complexes;
- carbon nanocomposite systems;
- synthesis and characterization of nanocomposites reinforced with stratified silicates and carbon nanotubes;
- electrically conductive micro and nanopolymers for electronic applications;
- micro and nanostructural analysis and characterization of metallic and non-metallic materials;
- characterization of novel nanostructured materials, carbon nanotubes, nanocrystals, and nanoparticles;
- biological structures and cells investigations;
- multifunctional materials with functional gradients.
