The Barcelona Nanotechnology Cluster – Bellaterra celebrates the 3rd PhD Students Scientific Meeting
The event was aimed to present the work performed by the PhD students of the institutions forming the cluster. Civan Avci from the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and Materials Group, was awarded with the Best Talk Prize.
Blanca Chocarro-Ruiz gets the first prize for a poster in EUROMOF 2017
The awarded poster was titled “Novel photonic nanosensor integrating MOFs as specific receptors for gas sensing”, a shared effort involving the ICN2 NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications Group and the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and Materials Group.
Self-assembly of highly-porous crystalline particles into novel photonic materials for sensing applications
Researchers from the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) and the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) have formed highly-porous metal-organic framework particles that spontaneously assemble into well-ordered 3D superstructures that present photonic crystal properties. Published in Nature Chemistry, their discoveries are expected to find applications in the design of novel photonic materials for sensing applications, among others.
