Porous Metal Oxide Films


Thin porous metal oxide films offer unique physical, electrical and magnetic properties with applications in various fields including catalysis, gas sensing and separation, power storage and generation as well as biology and medicine. Currently known synthesis techniques for metal oxide films with templated porosity (e.g. dip-coating, spin-coating) show significant limitations when they are faced with large substrates and/or substrates with a micro-structured surface.<br><br> <b>Technology:</b><br> We offer an improved method for the production of porous metal oxide films on a substrate using template assisted electrostatic spray deposition (ESD). It overcomes all known problems of current technologies like dip- and spin coating.This novel method is able to produce unisized mesoporous and macroporous films by directly controlling the size and concentration of the pore forming organic templates in an initially formed precursor solution. <br><br>

<b>Benefits:</b><br> <ul> <li>Hierarchically structured meso- and macroporous films</li> <li>Control of pore morphology (volume, size, distribution, connectivity)</li> <li>Pores can be coated with catalytic active material</li> <li>Various substrates can be used</li> <li>Coating of large substrates</li> <li>Easy transfer to industrial applications</li> <li>Production under room conditions</li> </ul><br><br> <b>IP Rights</b><br> PCT Application with priority on October 2009<br><br> <b>Patent Owner</b><br> Technische Universität Berlin

Im Focus: Tiny implants for cells are functional in vivo

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.

In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...

Researchers embark on aerial campaign over Northeast Greenland

On 15 March, the AWI research aeroplane Polar 5 will depart for Greenland. Concentrating on the furthest northeast region of the island, an international team...

Im Focus: Unique Insights into the Antarctic Ice Shelf System

Data collected on ocean-ice interactions in the little-researched regions of the far south

The world’s second-largest ice shelf was the destination for a Polarstern expedition that ended in Punta Arenas, Chile on 14th March 2018. Oceanographers from...

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...
