Principais objetivos, atividades e resultados esperados:

The Project is devoted to cost-effective and scalable preparation of multifunctional core-shell composite materials and some of their possible applications. Core-shell particles of micro- and nanoscale feature different chemical compositions on the surface and in the core region and exhibit improved properties as compared to their single-component counterparts, e.g. increased stability, unique magnetic, catalytic and optical properties. Traditional wet approaches to preparation of the core-shell particles will be uplifted to a new level, while dry mechanochemical methods are supposed to be the main point of interest and development. Viability of the prepared multifunctional dispersed materials will be tested in catalytic multistage one-pot reactions, smart corrosion protection, dynamic catalysis (induced activation of the catalytic particles with electromagnetic waves of different frequencies) and easy catalyst recycling. For all the above applications, the combination of several functions in one material is essential.

The Project has interdisciplinary character and is proposed to be a center of gravity, which combines experiences of different levels (from students to advanced research and academic stuff) and from various branches of Chemistry (material, synthetic, physical, photo chemistries and catalysis). As result, the Project can serve as a base for knowledge and technology transfer, skills exchange and dissemination of scientific culture. Many of the expected results concern important industrial processes, while synthetic procedures are intendent to be easily scaled up, thus providing a low threshold for commercialization.
