The end of November is kind to us as far as papers are concerned. Yet another paper by full-time Lendület group member Zoltán Győri was accepted for publication in Reaction Mechanisms, Kinetics and Catalysis yesterday. The title is "Visible Light Induced Photocatalytic Activity of TiO2 Nanowires Photosensitized with CdSe Quantum Dots". This paper reports on a huge body of experimental work Zoltán has performed on CdSe sensitized nanowire photocatalysis. Well done!
It is a pleasure to report here that our paper "Comparison of static and dynamic sonication as process intensification for particle size reduction using a factorial design" was accepted for publication in Chemical Engineering and Processing: Process Intensification. This work was performed in cooperation with the Faculty of Pharmacy. I am particularly happy about this one because it provides an example for the strength of the statistical Design of Experiments (DoE) method. All in all, a nice collaboration, I look forward to our next joint project.
Let us conclude this week with some good news! The paper " accepted for publication in Reaction Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis on Friday. This is a very nicely executed, detailed report on the single-pot synthesis of quantum dot heterostructures and on their photo luminescent properties. The work was performed and the manuscript was written by Zoltán Győri who is a full-time member of our Lendület group. Congratulations!ynthesis and Characterization of Composition-gradient Based CdxZn1-xSeyS1-y Heterostructured Quantum Dots" was
The annually organized International Conference on Chemistry has returned to Cluj-Napoca , after a 2 year tour in Băile Felix and Baia Mare, Romania. This year was also special because we celebrated the XX. anniversary of the conference that was first time organized in 1995.
Interesting topics were presented in the plenary lectures, we learned about shape-memory polymers, biopolymers, designer drugs and the extreme danger that they present. The PhD presentation award was won by Czikó Melinda, who works in a strong collaboration with our department.
On the behalf of MTA-SZTE "Lendület" Porous Nanocomposites Research Group Erzsébet Sára Bogya gave an interesting talk about sessile droplet evaporation study from macroporous carbon nanotube films.
