Nora Ventosa, Researcher at the Nanomol Group wishes to acknowledge Nathaly Segovia, Promotion Manager of Nanomol, for her important contribution in achieving this recognition.
Nanomol is a research group set up by the ICMAB-CSIC and CIBER-BBN that contributes to advancing knowledge in the field of molecular nanoscience and functional organic materials. Its main lines of research are molecular magnetism and electronics, low-cost organic electronics, supercritical fluids, nanomedicine and biomaterials.
The multidisciplinary research conducted by Nanomol studies the self-assembly, nanostructuring and processing of functional (bio- and electro-active) molecules as crystals, particles, vesicles, and structured or self-assembled monolayers on various substrates showing non-conventional chemical, physical and biological properties.
Nanomol proactively seeks to transfer knowledge to: a) Pharmaceutical companies that want to improve the clinical efficacy and selectivity of their active molecules through nanomedicine; b) Companies of medical or electronic devices wishing to introduce advanced materials with high performance to monitor changes in pressure, deformation or temperature. The group also supports companies in the chemical sector in general and the cosmetics sector that require the generation or characterization of powder, dispersion or emulsion formulations.
Nanomol is an expert center in the field of preparation and characterization of particulate matter (active ingredient particles, nanocapsules, vesicles, liposomes, active-polymer conjugates) and nanostructured surfaces.
The new technologies for the preparation of micro and nanoparticulate materials in a single stage of process developed by Nanomol: 1) They are based on the use of compressed/supercritical fluids, green solvents postulated as alternative solvents in many production processes; 2) They allow to produce in an efficient, reproducible and scalable way, high value-added materials in the form of powder, dispersion or emulsion, with advantageous properties in terms of administration and application.
