Project Title:

Advanced Functional Photoactive Nanomaterials: Fundamental Knowledge to Application

Head researcher:
Julia Pérez Prieto

Funding Entity:
Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación 

Duration:
01/01/2021 to 31/12/2023

Nanomaterials are at the leading edge of the rapidly developing field of nanotechnology due to their unique electronic, optical, and magnetic properties. This multidisciplinary project aims at obtaining tailor-made advanced photoactive nanomaterials suitable for biological applications, sensing, imaging, therapy, photocatalysis, and optoelectronics. The project covers a broad combination of simple, novel, and versatile methodologies to make nanomaterials consisting of an inorganic photoactive core, with or without inorganic shell(s) of other material, capped with a functional organic capping. Remarkably, the functionality of the nanomaterial is based on the synergistic effect between the inorganic nanoparticle and the organic capping. 

Patrocinado por el Gobierno de España y el FEDER

The purposes of this project are i) to gain a deeper knowledge on the photophysical events occurring in hybrid materials and taking place on the nano-tohundreds of microseconds scale; this is fundamental knowledge for enhancing the application of such materials as well as for designing new state-of-the-art photoactive materials; ii) to build more efficient photoactive nanomaterials, by means of more sustainable procedures, and/or their application in processes driven by light irradiation, mainly in the near-infrared region; iii) to gain a better understanding of strategies for NIR-driven photocatalysis now in place and iv) to introduce new strategies: to construct simple NIR responsive materials able to sensitize the formation of long-lived singlet excited states of organic fluorophores by using continuous wave laser diodes; and v) to perform thermodynamically demanding reactions by using low energy photons and by benefiting from the synergy between the nanomaterial surface and its organic capping.

Project Title: Adding Value to Material of Interest for LEDs and Photovoltaics

Head researcher:

Julia Pérez Prieto

Funding Entity:
Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación 

Duration:
01/12/2021 to 31/11/2023

The objective of this Proof of Concept project is to enhance a material, with potential application in photovoltaic technology, based on a hybrid formed by three components that are detailed in the project. The synergy between the components increases the stability against humidity and irradiation of the nanomaterial as a whole. The degradation studies will be carried out by a company specialized in photovoltaic cells and systems, offering certification and validation services. The mass production of the hybrid material will be carried out in the Industrial Scaling and Development laboratory that is part of the Scientific Unit for Business Innovation (UCIE) of ICMol.

The project is related to the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology, which is contemplated in the thematic subareas of materials for energy and the environment, and materials with electrical, magnetic, optical or thermal functionality. Specifically, high-performance hybrid materials will be synthesized with a response to sunlight. The development of the project may lead to advances in the field of energy, an area of knowledge with great international impact. This project combines the interest and possibilities offered by nanotechnology with the optical properties of two types of materials that together take advantage of sunlight in a wide range of wavelengths, so it is expected that the results will have an impact on photonics. From the advances generated in this project, important scientific and technological benefits can be derived that result in economic growth thanks to the development of the market.

Duration: 01/01/2016 to 31/12/2018

NANOFOR aims to obtaining colorless nano-fluorophores with high optical response by excitation and up-conversion response in predesigned wavelengths and the synthesis process through the development of new reactors in continuous, including the development of identification and recognition systems for the control of the process. The nano-pigments of developed ceramic properties will be destined to a market identified with a high demand for these products in the short term, as well as other emerging markets in the medium and long term.

Sunlight on nanocatalysts to lower global energy use, emissions and pollution

Reference:

Head researcher: María González Béjar

Funding Entity: Fundación Ramón Areces

Duration: 01/01/2017 – 31/12/2019

Nanoparticles (NP) can be used to convert solar light to thermal or chemical energy. Undoubtedly, energy efficiency can be improved using solar light as renewable endless source. Nanocatalysts that absorb solar light are the perfect alternative to design new lower-temperature and less energy demanding processes as compared to conventional ones.
First, the strategy would be to avoid thermal processes that consume half of the energy required nowadays. These thermal processes would be induced by solar light instead. That would cut down CO2 emissions and, therefore, it would help to decarbonize the economy and help to stop the Climate Change (which is better than “emit now, remove later”). As a consequence it would lower global energy use and pollution.
Secondly, the pollution that cannot be avoided would be reduced by photochemical approaches: advanced oxidation processes and positive photocatalysis. Remarkably, the use of nanoparticles for photocatalytic processes with thermal and synthetic purposes is still in its infancy and this approach could open up new ways to develop greener processes.
