About Us

We are an interdisciplinary group with diverse research interests

The N&N Group's research is mainly focused in the rational synthesis of nanoparticles and nanocomposites and the study of their structural-functional properties incluing those related to the nano/bio interfaces. The group vision is to see our materials impacting in Nanomedicine, Information Technologies or Energy and Environment. Surf our website if you want to know more about us and our research!
