11th Nanomaterials Webinar

Sustainable Synthesis of Oxides for Electronics, Photocatalysis and Energy Applications

The “Sustainable Synthesis of Oxides for Electronics, Photocatalysis and Energy Applications” webinar intends to give an overview of metal oxide nanomaterials produced using hydrothermal/solvothermal syntheses and solution combustion methods. In fact, metal oxides are an important class of materials with unique properties that are attractive for various applications, ranging from electronics to photocatalysis. Thus, the sustainable production of metal oxides is highly desirable.

Solution-based synthesis methods provide a versatile and facile route of obtaining metal oxides nanomaterials with properties tailored to meet the demands of specific applications, while hydrothermal/solvothermal methods have the advantage of using solvents that are more environmentally friendly, like water, and cost-effective when compared to related production methods.

Solution combustion synthesis is widely explored for the preparation of semiconducting (In2O3, ITO, IZO ZTO and IGZO), insulating (Al2O3, HfO2, ZrO2), and conductive (doped-In2O3) oxide thin films for application in printed electronic devices. Hydrothermal synthesis is preferred to prepare nanostructured powders or films (TiO2, ZnO, ZTO and WO3) with high surface area for photocatalysis of pollutant dyes (such as methylene blue, rhodamine B, among others) under UV and/or sunlight. For each method/application emphasis is given to processing technologies that are aligned with Sustainable Development Goals.

Rodrigo Martins is full professor in Materials Science Department of Faculty of Science and Technology of New University of Lisbon, a Fellow of the Portuguese Engineering Academy since 2009 and a member of the European Academy of science since 2016. He was decorated with the gold medal of merit and distinction by the Almada Municipality for his R&D achievements. Currently he is the (1) Director of the Centre of Excellence in Microelectronics and Optoelectronics Processes of the Institute of New Technologies, CEMOP/Uninova; (2) Head of the group of Materials for Electronics, Optoelectronics and Nanotechnologies (MEON) of CENIMAT/I3N; (3) President of the European Academy of Sciences; (4) Member of the Advisory Board of Horizon 2020 on DG Research and Innovation (Advanced Materials, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Manufacturing); (5) Chair of The European Committee Affairs of European Materials Research Society, E-MRS; (6) Chair of The Global Leadership and Service Award Committee of the International Union of Materials Research Societies, IUMRS; (7) Vice-Chair of Energy, Materials Industry Research Initiative, EMIRI. Rodrigo Martins has been involved in the pioneer European research on amorphous silicon semiconductors and pioneer with is group worldwide activity related to passive and active oxides, the so called transparent electronics and it is one of the inventors of the so-called paper electronics, where paper is exploit not only as a substrate but also as a functional component in active devices. Martins published over 700 papers and during the last 10 years got more than 14 International and national prizes and distinctions for his work.
