Microporous polymers for the upgrading of biogas via molecular separation or the catalytic transformation of carbon dioxide to methanol
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Methane and methanol can be used in renewable energy systems to balance
fluctuating power and ensure a supply of renewable fuels and can be
precursors in the synthesis of materials and chemicals. However, the
processes associated with generating or purifying these small ...

Novel inorganic open framework structures enabled by ionic liquids
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

I have just been offered a chair professor position in Physical
Materials Chemistry at Stockholm University and I am in the process of
seting up research activities at Stockholm University. I propose here to
use specifically designed ionic liquids (ILs) to obtain novel

Bioactive zirconia mesocrystalline nanoceramics
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

For medical implant applications the exceptional biocompatibility and cyocompatibility of zirconia ceramics are appreciated. Yet, to date, zirconia ceramics has been recognized as bio-inert as it cannot promote the formation of new bone mineralized matrix, i.e. osseoi...

Extended DREAM: Multiple-length scale approach to functional nanomaterials
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Development of novel nanomaterials requires a detailed knowledge of the composition and structure from the atomic bond level (sub-Å) to the mesoscopic level (nm) that gives information about the particle morphology. The combination ...

Development and application of new methods for solid-state NMR of paramagnetic materials
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

The general goal of this project is to investigate the key role of paramagnetic metal ions that are present in materials such as batteries, catalysts, solid-state lighting, and metalloproteins, that are at the core of modern chemistry, materials science, and biology. The ions ...

Design of new functional inorganic porous materials from "LEGO" building units
01/01/2017 - 31/12/2020

Our society is facing serious energy and environmental problems and inorganic porous materials have an important role to address some of them. Due to the extraordinary stability, low prices and selectivity, they have been widely use...

Advanced Carbon Materials from Biowaste: Sustainable Pathways to Drive Innovative Green Technologies
01/10/2016 - 30/09/2020

The energy crisis, environmental pollution and global warming are serious problems that are of great concern throughout the world. Around 40% of the world’s energy consumption is dedicated to the production of materials and chemicals. Thus, there is a need to develop high-perf...

A multiscale approach towards mesostructured porous material design
01/03/2016 - 29/02/2020

"MULTIMAT addresses (1) the industrial and societal need for affordable materials that have a highly defined and large porosity together with the required (mechanical, chemical and/or thermal) robustness for application in thermal insulation, catalysts, fuel cells and oil spil...

Development of Smart Tools for Gauging Nano Hazards
01/03/2016 - 28/02/2020
A definitive conclusion about the dangers associated with human or animal exposure to a particular nanomaterial can currently be made upon complex and costly procedures including complete nanomaterial characterisation with consequent careful and well-controlled in vivo experiment...

Self-assembly and mesocrystal engineering of anisotropic nanoparticles
01/01/2016 - 31/12/2019

Self-assembly offer simple and versatile routes for producing materials or devices with nanoscale control over surface and bulk structure for a multitude of functional applications. Indeed, the transformation of designed nanoparticles into new materials with uniqu...
