Nanotechnology is a brach of science that concerne the control of matter in nanometric scale , many field was used for this purpose : chemistry , material science , mulecular biology etc.
The best interest in our research is in two kind of nanostructures : ZnO nanowires and layered double hydroxide. ZnO nanowires are a 1D nanostructures which have interesting in electronics optics and photonics.
Layered Double Hydroxide (LDHs) are 2d nanostructures have many application in catalysis, in ion-exchange and adsorption, Pharmaceutics, photochemistry, electrochemistry and as additives in fuctional polymer materials. The synthesis method to growth these two type nanostructures is hydrotermal, a simple and cheap technique. To prepare the hydrotermal growth is used a new reactor which was projected for a large surface, by doing so, is possible consider an industrial employment.
Knowledge and skills that support innovative ideas in order to tackle all the real world problems.
