Researchers from the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and Materials Group have published a Concept Article in Chemistry: A European Journal to showcase recently developed synthetic strategies to control the 1-, 2- and 3-D organization of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF) crystals.
The European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) has chosen to fund ICN2 Prof. Mónica Lira-Cantu’s StableNextSol Action, which will create an interdisciplinary, pan-European network of researchers to improve the stability of organic photovoltaic cells. The COST Action’s first Management Committee meeting was held on March 20, 2014, in Brussels, Belgium.
Nanosfun research group develops robust hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings for textiles waterproofing applications based on a novel approach to the biomimetic polymerization of mussel-inspired catechol derivatives.
A study to be published in Small unveils the first surface-based biosensing system to be assisted by micromotors. The work was conducted by the ICN2 Nanobioelectronics and Biosensors Group, led by ICREA Prof. Dr. Arben Merkoçi.
The Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2) has been accredited as a Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence
This prestigious recognition will give the Institute one million Euros per year for the next four years. Severo Ochoa resources will be used to promote nanoscale devices to solve social challenges in biological, energy, and information systems. Four other Spanish centers will receive this award along with ICN2, placing them on the list of the most prominent research centers in Spain.
