Article published in „NANOMATERIALS” journal
In the 10/2020 issue of the scientific, interdisciplinary „Nanomaterials” journal the article „A Review of Microwave Synthesis of Zinc Oxide Nanomaterials: Reactancts, Process Parameters and Morphologies” autorship Jacek Wojnarowicz (PhD), Tadeusz Chudoba (PhD) and Prof. Witold Łojkowski, was published.
The study reviews the state of the art in the field of microwave synthesis of ZNO NMs. The first part of the review presents the properties of ZnO and new applications of ZnO NMs. Subsequently, the properties of microwave heating are discussed and compared with conventional heating are presented. The final part of the paper presents reactants, parameters of processes, and the morphology of products.
The article was funded by the Polish National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR), grant number: DOB-BIO9/08/01/2018, project “The detection of latent fingerprints by nanoparticle using high pressure technology” (NANODAK).
First stage of NANODAK has been completed
The first stage of the “NANODAK” project has been completed on schedule. The research team developed a verification methodology of the components of nanodetectors and based on it carried out studies on the suitability of nanoparticles in revealing latent fingerprint. The obtained results allowed the optimization of nanodetector technology. As part of the stage, LED light sources have been designed to stimulate luminescence (fluorescence) of nanoparticles.

TOMSAD was represented by CEO Tomasz Sadowski and Joanna Bach.
Publikacja artykułu w czasopiśmie "Nanomaterials"
W numerze 10/2020, interdyscyplinarnego naukowego miesięcznika o zasięgu międzynarodowym, „Nanomaterials” ukazał się artykuł „A Review of Microwave Synthesis of Zinc Oxide Nanomaterials: Reactancts, Process Parameters and Morphologies”, autorstwa dr. inż. Jacka Wojnarowicza, dr inż. Tadeusza Chudoby oraz prof. Witolda Łojkowskiego reprezentujących Laboratorium Nanostruktur Instytutu Wysokich Ciśnień PAN.
Opracowanie stanowi przegląd stanu wiedzy z zakresu syntezy mikrofalowej nanocząstek tlenku cynku (ZnO NMs). W pierwszej części omówiono właściwości ZnO i nowe formy zastosowania ZnO NM. Następnie przedstawiono właściwości ogrzewania mikrofalowego i porównano je z ogrzewaniem konwencjonalnym. W ostatniej części artykułu opisano reagenty, parametry procesów oraz morfologię produktów.
Artykuł został sfinansowany ze środków Narodowego Centrum Badań i Rozwoju w ramach projektu nr DOB-BIO9/08/01/2018 „Ujawnianie śladów linii papilarnych nanocząsteczkami wytwarzanymi przy użyciu technologii wysokich ciśnień” (NANODAK).
