«Development and scale-up of photocatalyst and incorporation in ceramic materials»

This project aims to develop a new class of photocatalytic nanomaterials that can be incorporated in ceramic matrix, following conventional procedures in ceramic manufacture. In this sense, the materials need to withstand temperatures as high as 1000ºC. This project is in collaboration with SAMCA group and it is focus in a real application photocatalytic tiles. We already have preliminary experiments for successful incorporation of these photocatalysts, now the goal is to develop a process for scaling up the synthesis and extend the photocatalytic activity to the visible range. This project also offers a internship in the company Coloresmalt leader in tile fabrication
