Abraham Ayala defended on 15th of December his PhD thesis entitled “Janus-type and molecular MOF-based composites” in the ICN2.
In 2012 the ICN2, ICREA and Chemipol signed a licence agreement for the joint development of innovative antifungal paint based on micro- and nanoencapsulation technologies. This technology has been on the market since 2015, and is the third commercial product to emerge from the ICN2.

The event was aimed to present the work performed by the PhD students of the institutions forming the cluster. Civan Avci from the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and Materials Group, was awarded with the Best Talk Prize.

The awarded poster was titled “Novel photonic nanosensor integrating MOFs as specific receptors for gas sensing”, a shared effort involving the ICN2 NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications Group and the ICN2 Supramolecular NanoChemistry and Materials Group.

Researchers from the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2) and the Institute of Materials Science of Madrid (ICMM-CSIC) have formed highly-porous metal-organic framework particles that spontaneously assemble into well-ordered 3D superstructures that present photonic crystal properties. Published in Nature Chemistry, their discoveries are expected to find applications in the design of novel photonic materials for sensing applications, among others.

Iván Patricio Burneo defended on 29th of September his PhD thesis entitled “Metal-Organic Frameworks made of amino acids and adenine: chirality and hydrochromism”.
