Welcome Víctor Vallejo at ICMAB!

Hi. My name is Víctor and I have studied nanoscience and nanotechnology in the Autonomus University of Barcelona. I am currently investigating in ICMAB about the properties of the bacterial cellulose to use it in batteries, exactly in their electrodes. I am a person who takes care about the environment and enjoys to do activities in the nature. So, investigate a new way to store energy using a cheaper and biofriendly method is one of the things which motivates me to do that research.

The contribution of Clara Viñas and Francesc Teixidor at HALCHEM highlighted in C&EN News in Japan

Clara Viñas and Francesc Teixidor were Invited Speakers at HALCHEM IX, the 9th International Meeting on Halogen Chemistry (HALCHEM IX), which was held at the University of Perugia, Italy, between 23 and 26 of September 2019. The Japanese industry has a high interest in halogens (especially in iodine), and they have always participated in the HALCHEM conferences. This is possibly the reason why the Japanese version of the C&E News has highlighted this scientific event in their pages.

New patent on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents based on organic metal-free dendrimers

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a commonly used clinical imaging technique for noninvasive diagnosis and characterization of soft tissues. The technique provides images in excellent detail of tumors and related pathological conditions thanks to the contrast agents used in the procedure. Now, a group of researchers from the ICMAB led by José Vidal-Gancedo, from the Nanomol Group, have developed organic metal-free magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents based on dendrimers with a totally innovative synthesis procedure.
