The 11st International Symposium on Electrochemical Impedance Analysis (EIA11) is the next link of well established chain of EIA conferences held every three years. This edition in organized by DICCA-University of Genoa and ICMATE-National Research Council - Italy.
The analysis of the atmospheric aerosol composition, clouds, and short-lived gas-phase species is of primary importance for climate and air quality research. To this aim, the coupling of different and multiple atmospheric techniques at ground-based stations are significant to develop and improve climate and air-quality models.
This week's featured researches
This research activity is performed in the frame of the EUROFUSION (European Consortium for the Development of Fusion Energy), Work Package WPMAT – Task EDDI research project and deals with mechanical characterization at high temperatures of materials to be used in the fusion reactor ITER (International Thermonucleat Experimental Reactor) in Cadarache (France).
Synthesis of Metallic Nano-particles (Au, Pt) stabilized with organic capping molecules (tetraoctylamonium bromide) to prepare self-assembled hybrid systems with thiophene and pyrrole-based oligomers and polymers, properly functionalized. The materials organized in thin films through layer-by-layer are employed for Opto-Electronic applications and in Direct-Methanol Fuel-Cells.
Carbon Glass (CG) and CG modified with Carbon Nanotubes (NTs) or poly-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) electrodes, for the sensing of chemotherapic molecules in physiological solutions, through Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) and Differential Pulsed Voltammetry (DPV).
