BIOCIDAL POLYMER-OXIDE NANOCOMPOSITES

Entity: 
European Commission
Type: 
European Union International Projects
Leader: 
Dra. Muñoz-Bonilla, Alexandra
ICTP Personal: 
Departamento de Química y Propiedades de Materiales Poliméricos. Dra. Cerrada García, María Luisa; Dra. Fernández- García, Marta.
Start: 
1 January 2011
End: 
31 December 2012
Summary: 

The aim of the proposal is the structural
characterization of antimicrobial
nanocomposite films for their use as membrane
in wastewater treatment. The films, consisting
of titanium dioxide and polyvinylidene fluoride
as the polymeric matrix, will be examined
using wide and small angle X-ray scattering
(WAXS/SAXS) to evaluate the effect of the
nanoparticle in its crystalline structure and
phase transitions. Budget: Alojamiento y viaje
