The main areas of interest of the NanoCarbon research group cover synthesis and application-oriented physicochemical modifications of carbon nanostructures.
Synthesis of carbon nanostructures comprises mainly c-CVD processing of sp2-C nanoallotropes while their chemistry is inspired by organic chemistry reactions. Both synthesis of pre-defined nanostructures and their modifications are designed to furnish nanomaterials exhibiting improved mechanical, electrical, thermal, electromagnetic, catalytic and biological properties. Hence, the natural recipients of our solutions are mainly chemical, civil/military, electrical and mechanical engineering as well as medicine. The representative examples of our achievements constitute nanobiocatalysts, products for stealth technology, heat-transfer nanofluids, conductive inks, polymer nanocomposites and CNT-based magnetic drug delivery systems.
