Computational and experimental characterization of hybrid metal-carbon nanotube systems (m-ntc) with potential application in electromagnetic and biomedical systems

Project Details

Description

In the quirema research group, numerous experimental and theoretical studies have been carried out on carbonaceous materials in energy production systems, gasification, combustion, hydrogen storage, among others. on the other hand, catalytic systems focused on the production of alternative fuels, reduction of the environmental impact of fossil fuels, among others, have also been studied. within these studies, catalytic systems have been developed for the production of hydrogen and carbon nanotubes, by reaction of decomposition of carbonated molecules such as methane, ethanol, glycerol and mixtures thereof. these catalytic systems constitute a method to obtain hydrogen, considered as the fuel of the future, and carbon nanotubes,materials with extensive technological applications, which, because they come from a biofuel, become a carbon sequestration system in solid form. several doctoral theses have been derived from the study of these systems, the results are published in several international articles, congresses and an international patent of the catalytic system for the production of hydrogen and carbon nanotubes by decomposition of ethanolcongresses and an international patent for the catalytic system for the production of hydrogen and carbon nanotubes by decomposition of ethanolcongresses and an international patent for the catalytic system for the production of hydrogen and carbon nanotubes by decomposition of ethanol

Objective

Synthesize, characterize and computationally model hybrid systems metal-ntc

Expected results

This research proposal is the continuation of previous research, within the quirema group, in the preparation of catalysts and synthesis of carbon nanotubes, areas in which there are two patents. in these investigations have been linked national research groups as foreigners (university of poitiers and university of texas in san antonio). this proposal intends to give continuity to these interinstitutional and interdisciplinary relations, as well as a new inter-institutional relationship with the university of medellin, in the area of ??computational modeling of materials. the development of this research proposal will generate new knowledge in the synthesis, characterization and computational modeling of hybrid m-cnt systems,which have potential applications in transport of medicines, electrical and electro-magnetic systems, in catalysis, among other fields. this new knowledge will be reflected in at least two publications in indexed international journals, a master's level degree work, two at the undergraduate level, and at least two presentations of papers in national or international congresses.
