Physics-Chemistry of Nanomaterials Lab, Institute of Inorganic Chemistry SB RAS, Novosibirsk

  • Institute of Inorganic Chemistry SB RAS
  • Physics-Chemistry of Nanomaterials Lab

Laboratory of Physics-chemistry of Nanomaterials was established on April 1, 2006 at the Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia. Our lab main focus is on the development of carbon nanotube and few-layered graphene synthesis and functionalization methods, creation of nanocarbon-based polymers composites and hybrids with quantum dots.

The lab research activities are mainly in the field of electrochemical and biomedical applications:
1) Photo- and electroluminescence of carbon nanotube/quantum dot hybrids;
2) Efficiency of luminescent markers attached to carbon nanotube and graphene;
3) Intracellular hypothermia with laser irradiation of carbon nanotube dispersions;
4) Electrochemical response of nanocarbon/polyaniline composites;
5) Nanocarbon-based biosensors for RNA recognition.

To investigate electron interactions in novel materials, we use soft X-ray spectroscopy (XPS, NEXAFS) and quantum chemistry methods. There are many young scientists in our lab who would benefit a lot from holding the international training.
