April 27, 2012, 12 p.m. - From organo-catalysts systems to nuclear waste treatments (Carles Bo)

Quantum Chemistry methods, and in particular those based on Density Functional Theory, enable to solve real-world problems as well as to understand and even discover new chemical processes. In this talk, some examples will be presented that demonstrate the versatility of modern computational tools: understanding the mechanism of primary amine ...

May 4, 2012, 12 p.m. - Polymer nanocomposites: Preparation, characterisation and properties (Giovanni Camino)

Polymer nanocomposites are among the most promising developing polymer materials owing to their outstanding properties which are due to their hybrid organic-inorganic interphase structure. In nanocomposites early stage development, processing and characterisation were addressed by blindly applying typical microcomposites approaches, underestimating peculiarities of their material interphase scharacteristics. Moreover, initial expectations ...

May 11, 2012, 12 p.m. - Doped Silica Nanoparticles as Bright Multicolour Electrochemiluminescent Labels (Simone Zanarini)

Electrochemiluminescence (ECL) i. e. the luminescence obtained by an electrochemical stimulus, proved to be an effective ultrasensitive detection method for genomics and proteomics. However, only one type of ECL label, based on a complex of ruthenium, Ru(bpy)32+, is currently used in bioanalysis. On the other hand, many compounds are known ...

June 1, 2012, 12 p.m. - Sustainable food processing for the future – intensification by joining forces (Remko Boom)

With a growing world population that acquires more affluence in many regions, people want to enjoy more luxury foods. At the same time, we have the ambition to shift from fossil fuels and materials to renewable sources. Arable land will therefore be at a premium, and we need to make ...

June 8, 2012, 12 p.m. - Hybrid metaheuristics: A short introduction (Christian Blum)

Metaheuristics, such as simulated annealing, evolutionary algorithms, tabu search, ant colony optimization, scatter search and iterated local search, are considered state-of-the-art methods for many combinatorial optimization problems. Lately, however, it has become evident that the concentration on a sole metaheuristic is rather restrictive. A skilled combination of concepts from different ...
