IIT has joined COST Action “Composites of Inorganic Nanotubes and Polymers (COINAPO)”

coinapo

COINAPO is an action within the framework of COST on "Composites of Inorganic Nanotubes and Polymers"

The research is focused on nanotubes made of inorganic materials, which are an interesting alternative to carbon nanotubes, showing advantages such as e.g. easy synthetic access, good uniformity and solubility, and predefined electrical conductivity depending on the composition of the starting material. They are therefore very promising candidates as fillers for polymer composites with enhanced thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties. Target applications for this kind of composites are materials for heat management, electrostatic dissipaters, wear protection materials, photovoltaic elements, etc. The proposed Action will link together European scientists working on this rapidly emerging field to create a basis for a highly interdisciplinary research network focused on development and exploration of inorganic nanotube-polymer composites. The action will generate a fundamental knowledge and create widespread links needed for application and commercialization of this kind of composite media by European industry.

Nanoforum 2010

nanoforumNanoforum, that reaches its sixth edition this year, is confirmed as the first-rate meeting point to promote the new possibilities offered by nanotechnologies and to foster the process of technological transfer from the academic world to the entrepreneurial one. It is an important occasion to know the state of art at world level and to establish contacts with Italian and foreign researchers
