The researcher of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and director of the Laboratory of Molecular Nanotechnology of the UA, Javier García, finishes to receive the Prize to the Best innovation 2017 in favour of the science and the technology in Spanish in the United States.
The researchers of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and University Institute of Materials of Alicante Prof. Antonio Sepúlveda Escribano and Dr. Enrique V. Bouquets-Fernández are authors of a recently published article in the prestigious magazine Chemical Society Reviews ("Metal-organic and covalent organic frameworks ace single-site catalysts" Chem. Soc. Rev., (2017), 46, 3134-3184 DOI: 10.1039/C7CS00033B) that, besides, has been selected to illustrate one of the covers of the magazine.
The article is a collaboration between the University of Alicante and several international institutions of high prestige: TUDelft (Low Countries), University of Gante (Belgium), CNRS-LCS (France) and CSIC-ITQ (Spain).
In the article review the last advances in the design of catalysts with an alone type of active centres and based in two new types of materials, MOF (Metal Organic Frameworks) and COF (Covalent Organic Framework). This article includes inside a special number of the magazine titled "Metal-organic frameworks and porous polymers - current and future challenges", where the more expert prestiges in MOF, COF and porous solids of last generation review the last works published and expose his vision with regard to the future development of these materials and of his applications.
The UA has done reality the creation of the eleventh company of technological base participated by the academic institution through the Foundation Scientific Park of Alicante and by the researchers José Miguel Martín Martínez, chair of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and Director of the Laboratory of Adhesion and Adhesive of the University and the doctors in Sciences of the MaterialesJosé Antonio Jofre Reche and Andrés Jesús Yáñez Pacios.
Researchers of the Laboratory of Adhesion and Adhesive of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry and the Service of Thoracic Surgery of the University Hospitable Complex of Albacete, have developed a new procedure for the filling and sealed of pleural cavities.
Their Majesties the Kings, beside the participants in the act of presentation of the main projects of scientific bilateral cooperation between Spain and Japan, between them Diego Cazorla, Chair of the Department of Inorganic Chemistry.
Find an optimum solution for reutilizar pieces of fibre of glass and resin was until the moment a challenge. Researchers of the Departameno of Inorganic Chemistry have patented a method that allows to recover the fibres of this type of materials to go back to be used.
Javier Narciso will do a route by the Science of the Materials and Lidó Rico, will reflect his restlessness by means of the work with these materials.
But, it explains Javier García, contrary to what are used to to imagine, the nanotechnology "does not consist in doing the small things, but in doing the new things".
Thanks to the nanotechnology have modified the colour of oxide of titanium, of white to the black, to take advantage of his excellent environmental applications based in the solar light.
A group of researchers from the Lboratorio of Adhesion and adhesives of the University of ALicante has developed a flexible polymeric material capable of autorrepararse. It is a novelty to world level which could be applied in various fields such as medicine, cosmetics, industry aeroespaciall and automotive. http://www.cuatro.com/_7acb17a5
The workshop which will be held on 27 April 2015 at the University of Alicante, deals with the synthesis of new catalytic materials for application in more sustainable processes. The workshop is included in the activities of dissemination of the European project WAste bio-feedstocks hydro-Valorisation processes (WAVES), included in the era-NET CAPITA (http: / / www.era-capita.eu/).
The study carried out by the Group of materials advanced inorganic chemistry laboratory research within a framework of international cooperation, has been published in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
