Synthesis/Surface Modification, Characterization and Properties of Carbogenic Nanomaterials

The activity focuses on the synthesis/surface modification, characterization and properties of the following nanomaterials:
1) conventional graphitic carbons (graphene, graphite oxide, graphite fluoride, nanotubes, cones, fullerenes) and conductive polymer carbon nanotubes nanocomposites.
2) novel carbogenic materials derived by the pyrolysis of suitable molecular precursors (thin films, foams, nanoparticles, functional layered networks, nanosheets and engineered forms).
Studied properties include: selective gas absorption, hydrogen storage, colloidal dispersions, superhydrophobicity, optical or magnetic properties, biocompatibility, antibacterial activity.
