Miquel Torras received an Extraordinary Master Prize!

Miquel Torras received an Extraordinary Master Prize from the University of Barcelona for his excellent marks during his MSc in Applied Materials Chemistry in this university (2016-2017). The ceremony took place last Tuesday, January 29, presided by the rector, Joan Elias. The University of Barcelona awarded, in the same ceremony, the honorary doctorate to two distinguished figures of European law: Luigi Ferrajoli, author of the relation between democracy and law, and Luciano Vandelli, first authority on administrative law and territorial organization.

Congratulations Miquel, you rock!

25th-27th of June 2018

Miquel Torras, PhD student at the N&N group, travelled to Madrid to attend the 3rd International Conference on Polyol Mediated Synthesis (ICPMS) held at the Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid (ICMM). Miquel presented the talk “Fast and Simple Microwave Synthesis of Multicomponent Gold Nanoparticles”.

Good job Miquel!

Carlos and Miquel attended a TEM course

 

Miquel in the TEM course

Miquel Torras and Carlos Moya attended the Transmission Electronic Microscopy (TEM) course given by UAB Microscopy service. During this training they learned fundamentals and modes of electronic microscopy. They also focused on the preparation of both materials and life science samples. In practical seasons, they learned how to align an electronic microscope for low and high resolution imaging. In addition, they did diffraction mode and also Electronic Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS).

As we announced before, on Friday 21st of April Miquel Torras received his Sant Jordi Price 2017 at the IEC: Institut d’Estudis Catalans.
The ceremony took place at the Prat de la Riba hall with the presence of  Joandomènec Ros, president of the IEC, Jana Balacciu winner of the international price Catalònia and Carme Forcadell the president of the Catalan Parliment. 

Miquel received two prices: one from the Catalan Society of Chemistry and a recognition from the Catalan Society of Physics. 

Here Miquel says a word of thanks to the IEC and those how supported his work: 
 
 
 

Benvolguts companys i amics, m’és difícil expressar l’emoció que he sentit i continuo sentint pel fet d’haver estat multi premiat als premis Sant Jordi 2017, però puc dir que veig recompensat l’esforç dedicat, provant que la bona feina i el treball rigorós són finalment reconeguts.

M’agradaria tornar a agrair els premis a l’Institut d’Estudis Catalans, i a les Societats Catalanes de Química i de Física. És el meu desig estar-ne a l’altura continuant aportant quelcom a la ciència (i a la ciència en català). També vull compartir-los amb vosaltres, ja que han estat possibles amb la vostra col·laboració i ajuts. Moltes gràcies!

Congratualtions again for your good job Miquel!

Miquel Torras multipremiat per les Societats Catalanes de Química i de Física pel seu treball final de grau

Miquel Torras, membre del N&N Group, ha guanyat el Premi de la Societat Catalana de Química (per a estudiants) de l’Institut d’Estudis Catalans (IEC) a la Convocatòria dels Premis Sant Jordi 2017, i una menció honorífica al Premi Jordi Porta i Jué de la Societat Catalana de Física (per a estudiants). 

El treball d’investigació presentat va ser el seu treball final de grau (TFG) “Nanomaterials amb propietats magnètiques i plasmòniques: nanotriangles d’or decorats amb nanopartícules d’òxid de ferro superparamagnètiques” supervisat per Anna Roig

Els premis seran lliurats a la Sala Prat de la Riba de l’IEC el dia 21 d’abril a les 12 hores

En Miquel Torras va realitzar el seu TFG durant el primer semestre del 2016. Actualment està cursant el màster a la UB en “Química de Materials Aplicada” i ha tornat al N&N Group per realitzar el treball de màster.

Estem molt contents per aquests premis! Esperem que els gaudeixis, Miquel!
