ICF tasks ( ICF tasks (Laboratory of oxide materials science (Dr. Maria Zaharescu) in collaboration with Laboratory of surface chemistry and catalysis (Dr. Mariuca Gartner) Synthesis of mono-, bi- and poly-component nanopowders based on TiO 2, ZrO 2 and Fe 2 O 3 using sol-gel and hydrothermal method Structural and optical characterization of the powders Elaboration of oxide and hybrid nanocomposite sol-gel films with the obtained powders by ICF and othe project partners Calculation of thickness, optical constants and interband transition of the film using Spectroscopic Ellipsometry coupled with B-EMA (Bruggemann’s Effective Medium Approximation) Establishing the correlation between optical properties of the materials and the technological parameters, based also on Spectroellipsometry. Other european projects: Improving the understanding of the impact of nanoparticles on human health and the environment “ImPart” Coordination Action (CA) - Improving the understanding of the impact of nanoparticles on human health and the environment “ImPart” Co-ordinating organisation: Chalex Research Ltd., UK LIST OF PARTICIPANTS: Chalex Research Ltd. (UK), NFM (IL), Institute of Physical Chemistry “I.G. Murgulescu” (RO), Jozef Stefan Institute (SI), University of Leicester (UK), Kaunas University (LT), University of Munich (D), Technology Codes Ltd.

(CY), Project objectives: To prevent knowledge of the health and environmental implications of nanoparticles from lagging behind the technological advances. In order to do this, ImPart will foster communication links between numbers of regional, national and international initiatives in order to reduce duplication of effort, pool expertise and facilitate co-operation between networks. This will result in an improvement in the understanding of the potential impact of nanoparticles on human health and the environment. ICF tasks: ICF Laboratory of chemical thermodynamics (Dr. Speranta Tãnãsescu) is involved in all the actions of the project having the principal goal understanding of the short and long term implications of nanotechnology for health and the environment. The contribution in the project is based on the former research experience existing in the Laboratory of Chemical Thermodynamics as concerns the large potentialities offered by the Applied Chemical Thermodynamics to characterize and investigate from the energetic point of view the advanced materials involved in the complex modern systems and the new technologies. Contribution to answer the following questions are expected: To what extent can the energetic properties of nanocomposites be predicted from properties of the nanoscale end-members? Which is the influence of different compositional variables on the nanophase energetics? What environments, besides the now familiar aqueous low temperature setting, are likely to harbor nanoscale phenomena, and how would thermodynamic modelling be affected? Which environmental factors and in what extend they are responsible for the interactions between biological and non-biological systems? Are the existent thermochemical databases enough comprehensible to prevent or for diminution of ecological hazards?
