Victoria spends 2 months in FISPOL

Dr. Victoria Bracamonte, from the National University of Córdoba (UNRC), Argentina joined us for 2 months from the 4th of October within the framework of a bilateral CONICET-CSIC project to work on the development of different polymers as a protection layer for lithium anodes. More HERE

GO triggers photothermal bactericide

Recently published in the journal Photodiagnosis and Photodynamic Therapy, Dr. Horacio Salavagione in colaboration with scientists from the UNRC, Argentina, show that the combination graphene oxide with near-infrared photothermal therapy significantly increases bacterial mortality. More HERE

Summer duo hot off the press

Two new articles on graphene-based materials have just appeared from members of the group. The first on the search for effective compatibilising agents for PEEK/Graphene nanocomposites, and the second on the nonlinear thermal and optical properties of dispersed graphene as a saturable absorber in laser cavities.

IntroductioN

The Polymer Physics Group (FISPOL), of the Department of Polymer Physics, Elastomers and Energy, is located in the Institute of Polymer Science & Technology, ICTP, of the Spanish Scientific Research Council, CSIC.


OUR MISSION

The main activity of the group is fundamental and applied research in polymeric materials, with wide experience in the areas of polymer blends, composites, hybrid and nanocomposite materials.

Our more recent goals have centred on the development of polymer nanocomposites based on graphene, carbon nanotubes and inorganic fullerene-like nanoparticles with improved performance properties, and sustainable mesoporous carbon materials for diverse application areas.
