This division in KTH is involved in nanostructured functional materials for energy, environment and bio-medical applications. FNM hosts state-of-the-art characterization equipments for nanotechnology research. Current research activities are broadly directed in two themes namely ‘Planetcare’ and ‘Healthcare’.
Water/Energy/sustainabile technology nexus
Impaired water treatment
Enhanced adsorption/desorption processes
Visible Light photocatalysis
CO oxidation and reverse gas shift reaction is of interest from climate change
Novel hydrogen production.
Anti-fouling coatings and structures
Biomedical applications of nanostructures
MR contrasting agents
drug delivery and release
FNM coordinates and collaborates in various nanotechnology projects with a wide network of institutes and research groups within Sweden (KTH, SU, KI, UU) as well as in the EU, Asia (China, India), Latin America (Chile, Argentina), south-east Asia (Thailand, Philipines) and the middle-east (Oman, Iran, Qatar, Saudi Arabia).
