The Surface Chemistry of Metal Fluoride Nanocrystals

Date: Wednesday, 31 October 2018foto 1
Time: 11 am
Venue: Sala de Graus, Facultat de Ciències, UAB

Abstract: This thesis is mainly based on the understanding the synthesis and the final behaviour of the surface of LnF3 nanocrystals. In consequence, this knowledge will allow the control and manipulation of the bridge between synthesis and applications, currently called surface chemistry.

Starting from the successful synthesis of fifteen different types of inorganic nanocrystals, the general trends of metal fluoride nanocrystals is successfully unravelled. A new kind of ionic self-assembly in colloidal systems is postulated and  thermodynamically stable patchy nanocrystals also obtained. Using experimental techniques and molecular dynamics simulations, a self assembly mechanism also applicable to other kind of systems is postulated and we demonstrate that the different facets of the patchy nanoparticles can be modified selectively.
