Novel carbon nanomaterials (with special attention to nanohorns) in biomedical applications.

Investigator

Title of the project Novel carbon nanomaterials (with special attention to nanohorns) in biomedical applications.
Primary and secondary scientific disciplines Chemistry and Biology
Description of the project Characteristics and main objectives of the research project:

  • Modification of carbon nanomaterials to get various surface groups. Characterization to get full information about morphology, functionalization and properties.
  • Controllable opening of carbon nanohorns to get access to the inner space.
  • Toxicity studies of carbon nanomaterials – the influence of the surface group and morphology on toxicity.
  • Adsorption/desorption study of drugs on carbon nanomaterials.

The project is conducted in cooperation with:

Universidade Federal de Ciências da Saúde de Porto Alegre (UFCSPA),
Rua Sarmento Leite, 245 – Porto Alegre – RS – BRAZIL – CEP 90050-170

Principal supervisor: prof. dr hab. Artur P. Terzyk
