Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites: from Fabrication to Function

Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites: from Fabrication to Function


Dept. of Inorganic Materials Chemistry & Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering, School of Chemical Technology, Aalto Univ., Finland


Nanochemistry and Nanoengineering group aims at create, functionalize, characterize and design unique, smart and advanced materials with diverse multifunctional properties for new technological applications to the emerging fields of energy, environment, and medicine. Throughout our research, we intend to understand and explore some of the basic principles of synthesis and function of nanostructured materials and polymer based nanocomposites while aiming to solve complex problems in the design of tailored functional material. In my talk snapshots of our current researches will be given while shading light on the fascinating challenges and opportunities.

Mady Elbahri obtained his B.Sc. in chemistry from Cairo University, Egypt, and his M.Sc. in polymer chemistry from the Technical University of Clausthal, Germany. He received his Ph.D. “with highest honors” in the field of Nanotechnology and his Habilitation in Material Science from Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel,Germany. In 2009, he established the Nanochemistry and Nanoengeenering group at the University of Kiel and Helmholtz Center Geesthacht (Germany), which is currently located at School of Chemical Engineering, Aalto University (Finland). He is a member and project leader in the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 677 “Function by Switching” at the University of Kiel. Elbahri is known as the founder of the Leidenfrost Nanochemistry. From nano to functional macroscopic architectures for energy, environment, and life science is the vision of the Nanochemistry and Nanoengineering group.
