Scientists from the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of the CAS in Řež will introduce the techniques used for nanomaterial characterization and the results from their collaboration with the Department of Metals and Corrosion Engineering at UCT Prague will be presented. The 14th NARECOM will take place on Wednesday, February 16 2022 at 2:30. p.m. JOIN ZOOM MEETING https://cesnet.zoom.us/j/97549258494
1) Ing. Petra Ecorchard, Ph.D. (Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of the CAS, CIT, Prague - Řež):
Use of NanoEnviCz project for better knowledge of your nanomaterials
The NanoEnviCz project is a great tool how to establish professional cooperation in the field of nanomaterials and toxicity of these nanomaterials. The presentation will show the examples of collaborations, what exactly can be expected from it, and that it is open to all kinds of scientific groups such as students or researchers, and companies. The cooperation results in student theses (Bc., Mgr., Ph.D.), publications, or creation of new projects.
2) Ing. Darina Smržová, Ph.D. (Institute of Inorganic Chemistry of the CAS, CIT, Prague - Řež):
Surface area evaluation and atomic force microscopy at the IIC
Gas adsorption is used for characterization of powders and porous solids. Surface area and pore size distribution evaluation is useful for users in various fields including catalysis. Progress in this area goes hand in hand with development of instrumental equipment.
Atomic force microscopy (AFM) is important tool for characterization of materials. Principle of AFM is very different from other microscopy techniques. Due to various modes, it can provide information about mechanical, magnetic and electrical properties.
3) Ing. Xénia Vislocká (Department of Metals and Corrosion Engineering, UCT Prague, Technická 5, 166 28 Prague 6):
Structure and properties of metal titanates
In the past, our research group developed a synthesis procedure for titanate microrods with excellent sorption properties. This material behaves as an ion exchanger with high capacity for metallic ions to form metal titanates while preserving the original microrod morphology and amorphous character. Using techniques available through NanoEnvi project, it is possible to explore the properties of these metal titanates and the possibility of preparing new TiO2 based materials.
