Teses CINBIO - Ecem Tiryaki 16 December 2022
O venres 16 de decembro ás 11h Ecem Tiryaki do grupo de investigación TeamNanoTech (TNT) presentará a súa tese de doutoramento baixo o título "Hybrid Composites with Elongated Functional Plasmonic or Magnetic Nanoparticles for Environmental or Biomedical Applications". Será no Salón da Graos da Facultade de Bioloxía UVigo.
This thesis is a multidisciplinary study focusing on the design, synthesis, characterization, and application of hybrid nanomaterials exhibiting plasmonic or magnetic properties. The main goal of the thesis is to use these nanomaterials effectively in environmental or biomedical fields, following the fabrication of hybrid nanostructures with improved performances. The thesis goal is divided into two main
parts: (i) photocatalysis studies in which enhance the photoactivity of titanium dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs), a semiconductor, by plasmonic anisotropic nanostructures, and (ii) the design of anisotropic spiky structures by means of the incorporation of elongated magnetic nanostructures on a curved surface as potential remote control tools, and investigation of their interactions with living cells.
