  • Prof Dr D. Maspoch has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant

    21st January 2014

    » Prof Maspoch has been awarded one of the 312 granted ERC Consolidator Grants among the 3673 applications received in this 2013 call. The project, entitled “Multifunctional micro- and nanostructures assembled from nanoscale metal-organic frameworks and inorganic nanoparticles, InanoMOF”, aims to develop frontier Supramolecular and Nanochemistry methodologies for the synthesis of a novel class of structures via controlled assembly of nanoscale metal-organic frameworks (nanoMOFs) and inorganic nanoparticles (INPs). The resulting hybrid nanoMOF@INPs will marry the unique properties of INPs (magnetism of iron oxide NPs and optics of Au NPs) to the functional porosity of MOFs, and they are expected to serve as drug-delivery/theranostic systems and as magnetic sorbents for pollutant removal.

  • Technology Transfer Contract with Despro SL

    24th October 2013

    » ICN, ICREA and the company Despro SL have signed a licensing agreement on joint development of novel biocide products. The contract is the fruit of a collaboration that began in 2009, when Despro was looking for technical assistance for the development of novel disinfectant products. Through this technology transference contract, the parties have established a long-term collaboration to scale-up and commercialise the new products.
