From Physics to Biology

Tuesday 25 November 2008 09:15

Back to previous menu From Physics to Biology Biological effects of carbon nanotubes The expanding industrial uses of carbon nanotubes, as well as their potential uses in medicine, make the evaluation of their toxicological risks urgent. Two approaches are developed in the laboratory, in collaboration with biologists and physicians (INSERM Unit 955): (1) the study of the toxicity of raw nanotubes It concerns in vitro analysis, at the cellular level, of the relationship (...)

Nanotubes and nanohybrids

Tuesday 25 November 2008 09:12

Back to previous menu Nanotubes and nanohybrids Nano-tubular structures stand as very promising new materials. Several aspects related to their structure and their dynamics are studied in our group, using i) X-ray diffraction (XRD) at our laboratory (see e.g. dedicated X-ray diffraction chamber) and on synchrotron facilities (SOLEIL, ESRF) and ii) inelastic neutron scattering (LLB, ILL). The main topics we are dealing with are: Growth mechanisms of carbon nanotubes (CNT). We (...)
