Applied Surface Chemistry
Applied Surface Chemistry forms together with Polymer Technology, Biopolymer Technology and Pharmaceutical Technology. Nanomaterials can be utilized as templates to create inorganic materials – metals, metal oxides, nanoparticles, nanowires have been prepared by this route. Examples of applications include catalysts for emission control, electrode materials for fuel cells, and porous media in which enzymes and metal-organic homogeneous catalysts can be inserted. Bionanomaterials, i.e., nanomaterials with applications withing biotechnology and biomedicine, Dental implants are one important application. NMR diffusometry is the most important measuring technique studies about structure and structure dynamics of supramolecular chemical materials such as gels, Nanoemulsions and the cellulose fiber. Surfactants are amphiphiles that break down readily in the environment. New type of surfactants is amino-acid based surfactant. Organic and bioorganic synthesis is performed in nanostructured media, such as microemulsions and suspensions of mesoporous materials, and organic gels.
