Anna May will give a talk at the III Meeting of Young Researchers in Colloids and Interfaces in Madrid

Anna May will give the talk “Au/TiO2 nanoparticles on bacterial cellulose membranes for water splitting in gas phase” in the III Meeting of Young Researchers in Colloids and Intrefaces (III Reunión de Jóvenes Investigadores en Coloides e Interfases), which is held in the Universidad Complutense of Madrid, during October 13-14, 2016. 

The work presented is in the framework of the Engineering Bacterial Cellulose Nanocomposites project from ICMAB, in collaboration with Jordi Llorca and Lluís Soler, from the Institut de Tècniques Energètiques (INTE) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). 

The meeting is organized by the Grupo Especializado de Coloides e Interfases, the Real Sociedad Española de Física, and the Real Sociedad Española de Química.img_8085

Jordi Llorca, one of our collaborators from INTE-UPC, in the Catalan newspaper ara.cat, talks about photocatalysis

Ciència.cat from ara.catJordi Llorca, from Institut de Tècniques Energètiques (INTE-UPC) explains in this video from the newspaper ara, one of the projects in which we collaborate: photocatalysis for hydrogen production from sunlight, a photocatalyst formed by TiO2/Au nanoparticles, and water: 

The video is part of the article, in Catalan: Com produïm electricitat amb el sol i l’hidrogen? 

In the video he says: “We obtain hydrogen -which is not in its free state in the Earth- to act as a source of energy, and to obtain it, we use use sunlight -completely clean-, a photocatalyst containing nanoparticles, and water.”

This article is part of a special issue called Ciència.cat about research and science in Catalunya, appeared this last Sunday with the newspaper ara.
