– Research interests:

  • Carbon-based materials and particularly nano-diamond particles (NDs), and graphene derivatives (rGO);
  • Silicon-based materials and, in particular, nanoparticles of silicon, silica and silicon carbide;
  • Core-shell hybrid nano-material with magnetic (Fe3O4), luminescent (Au) core protected with biocompatible shell.

We investigate the strategy and methodology for the functionalization of the nanoparticles in order to:

  • Produce new adsorbents for concentration and separation of bioactive compounds
  • Improve systems for drug delivery and target release;
  • Create nanoparticles for bacterial and cancer treatment.
