A new plant for producing aerogels – highly porous nanoparticles – has been built in the technology centre at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). The plant, jointly financed by the EU research project “NanoHybrids” and by industry, enables prototype aerogels to be produced for direct industrial tests for the first time.The skill and experience […]Read More
Today the EuroNanoForum 2017 has started. EuroNanoForum focuses on how nano and materials technologies can strengthen competitiveness across all European industries. 1000 delegates meet in 3 plenaries and 15 sessions, 100 speakers are engaged.
The Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia (MUCTR) is organising an International Youth Summer School: Aerogels: from laboratory to industry.
CEMEF is looking for a trainee to work “Cellulose aerogel beads” in the frame of European project “Nanohybrids”. During this internship, the student will prepare aerogels from cellulose solutions using “green solvents”, NaOH-water and ionic liquids, and make beads of different sizes. The preparation of hybrid organic-inorganic aerogels will also be considered. Various methods of […]Read More
The EU research project NanoHybrids, uniting well-known partners from European research and industry, can report its first successes: New methods have been developed for manufacturing organic and hybrid aerogels and they have already been used to produce initial small quantities of organic aerogels. Industry and research partners have cooperated closely to achieve this. Thus significant […]Read More
