On 28-30 January 2020 the Young Researchers Meeting in the field of Chemistry, organized by the Catalan Chemical Society (SCQ, IEC) will take place in Vilanova i la Geltrú. Many ICMAB PhD fellows will participate in the meeting presenting their research results, from curcuminoid-based compounds, fabrication of high-temperature superconducting layers, boron-based sensors, or bacteria-based protein nanoparticles for cell guidance and PAH-based electrochemical platforms.
Elena Oleshkevich, previous PhD fellow supervised by Clara Viñas at the LMI group, and currently working at the Norwegian company Jotun, has been awarded with one of the "Producto del Año 2020" awards for the industrial project "Majestic Pure Color" paint, selected as the best innovative product of 2020 in the sector of coatings and paintings.
Nine ICMAB researchers appear on the Webcindario h-index ranking. A database which contains information of the researchers working in Spain in different areas, which have a high h-index (higher than a certain threshold). Our researchers appear in 7 different research areas, being Multidisciplinary Chemistry, Inorganic & Nuclear Chemistry and Applied Physics the most common ones.
The dramatised reading "Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers" will be played on Saturday, 8 February 2020, at Vil·la Urània (Barcelona) at 6 pm, in the framework of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (11F). Come and join us!
- The new low-cost, environmentally friendly and scalable method, designed by ICMAB-CSIC researchers, represents a breakthrough in the production of superconducting materials
- A transient liquid phase is formed with the new precursors, from which the superconducting films grow at speeds of 100 nm/s
- This method is fully compatible with the incorporation of nanoparticles into the superconductor structure, essential for high magnetic field applications in wind generators, electric aviation or particle accelerators
