Institute: Institute of Geotechnics SAS

Nanoporous and Nanostructured Materials for Medical Applications
Nanopórovité a nanoštruktúrne materiály pre medicínske aplikácie
Program: Horizon 2020
Project leader: Ing. Václavíková Miroslava PhD.
Annotation:The main focus of this project is on developing advanced and more efficient methods of treatment of radiation sickness, radio-related toxicity, heavy metal poisoning and radiation cancerogenesis prevention. In this inter- and multidisciplinary project the applicants bring together complementary expertise in physical chemistry and chemical engineering, pharmacology, biochemistry, toxicology and medicine that would be transferred across the discipline boundaries and bring innovative and original solutions to develop a nanoporous sorbent-based method of health protection by adsorbing the target substances that are not currently removed or neutralised by alternative existing systems.
Duration: 1.1.2017 - 31.12.2020

Solutions for Critical Raw Materials Under Extreme Conditions
Riešenie problému kritických surovín pre materiály v kritických podmienkach
Program: COST
Project leader: Dr.h.c. prof. RNDr. Baláž Peter DrSc.
Annotation:Project is aimed at substitution of critical raw materials used in preparation of advanced alloys and composites under extreme conditions of temperature,loading, wear and shear in energy,,car and traffic sectors
Duration: 10.3.2016 - 9.3.2020

Development of Magnetic Composites with Adjustable Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic Surface
Vývoj magnetických kompozitov s kontrolovaným hydrofóbnym a hydrofilným povrchom
Program: Inter-academic agreement
Project leader: Ing. Václavíková Miroslava PhD.
Annotation:The joint Ukrainian-Slovak project is supposed to result in the detailed study of the effect of the conditions of magnetite functionalization on hydrophobic and hydrophilic properties of the coating layers. The surface of the obtained materials will be characterized by the presence of different types of dominant groups, specific functional groups selective to particular metal or group of elements; electron withdrawing or electron accepting groups, both from hydrophobic hydrocarbon radicals attached to the silicon atom and from organic groups directly incorporated in the silica framework (it is an organic bridge for bridged silsesquioxanes); residual silanol groups, and oxygen atoms of the siloxane bond. Such nature of sorbents surface will enable different types of interactions with different sorbates.
Duration: 6.4.2017 - 31.12.2019
