Good news on Pentecost weekend :) Our paper "Low temperature conversion of titanate nanotubes into nitrogen-doped TiO2 nano particles" was accepted for publication in CrystEngComm yesterday. I believe that this is a really useful paper for anyone interested in doping TiO2 nano particles with nitrogen. We even publish an approximate phase map to facilitate the rational design of doping experiments. It is particularly remarkable that the experimental work that serves as a basis for this paper was done by Mr. Balázs Buchholcz in his final B.Sc. year. Congratulations to all involved, that's the way to go guys!
It is a pleasure to report that Dr. Erzsébet-Sára Bogya, the post-doctoral researcher of our group has managed to secure some additional funding as Principal Investigator of a Domus Junior fellowship. The topic is to study the adsorption of albumin on hydroxyapatite-carbon nanotube-chitosan composites, the grantee is Ms. Melinda Czikó from the Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj Napoca, Romania. This research will be financed for 8 weeks by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in the Domus Junior program. Congratulations to Melinda and to Betty, keep up the good work!
