Responsive temperature nanomaterials to warn against temperature fluctuations

A group of scientists from ICN2, CSIC and BIST has developed high-temperature "off/on" fluorescent sensors based on polymeric nanoparticles. They allow to follow the thermal history of a process or material in a simple, cheap and scalable way.

Electro-conductive ceramics based on nanocellulose

Scientists at the CSIC and at the Jožef Stefan Institute have developed a method to combine at the nanoscale cellulose nanofibers with ceramic nanoparticles such as alumina and zirconia, resulting in mechanically strong and highly electro-conductive ceramic materials that can be subjected to different types of machining, such as green machiningm or electro-discharge machining.

A cheaper graphene synthesis method

Scientists at the CSIC have developed a new method for the direct growth of graphene on dielectric substrates, avoiding the step of transferring the graphene from the copper catalyst substrates to the substrates of practical interest, as silicon or glass, avoiding therefore the economical cost. It is a scalable and reproducible method to use graphene in multiple applications.

Anticorrosion microcapsules for construction materials

CSIC scientists have developed resin microcapsules containing corrosion inhibitors. This system allows the progressive and efficient release of the inhibitors, reducing both costs and environmental impact. This methodology can be applied on construction materials such as paint, coatings and, especially, reinforced concrete structures (RCS).
