ICMAB - Sala d'Actes Carles Miravitlles
In this seminar I will talk about the ICMAB's scientific-technical service "Preparation and Characterization of Soft Materials. I will make a brief explanation about the equipment for the characterisation of particulate materials, type of samples that can be analysed, reports, etc... I will also talk about the equipment for processing materials with supercritical fluids.
Description of the SOFT Service:
The SOFT Materials Service is scientific and technical service of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (CSIC) and the Unit 6 of the ICTS-NANBIOSIS. The mission of this facility is the large-scale production and characterization of molecular biomaterials of therapeutic or biomedical interest, with controlled micro-, nano- and supramolecular structure. This unit is composed of the equipment and the experienced personnel to develop and apply efficient, robust and green technologies based on the use of supercritical fluids, such as compressed CO2.
Amable Bernabé joined the ICMAB-CSIC in 2004 as a research assistant working at the Spectroscopic Service. Two years after, in 2006, he was promoted to technical coordinator of a research group Nanomol, and in 2008, he started as the technical manager of the Soft Materials characterization lab. Since 2009, he was appointed a permanent research technician at CSIC. His research interest is focused on the study and characterization of the physico-chemical properties of nanomaterials, particularly on particle size and shape, particle concentration, Z-Potential and stability studies.
