The Multifunctional Nanocomposites Group, is an independent research group at IMDEA Materials, founded by the PI in 2011. The group is highly multidisciplinary and draws people with backgrounds in physics, electrochemistry, chemical engineering, aerosol science and nanotechnology. Its prime focus is to study methods for the synthesis and assembly of 1D nanomaterials into macroscopic structures with high-performance properties for energy and transport applications. The group pursues research of excellence that contributes to the professional development of its members.

The overall aim of the group’s research is to exploit the superlative properties of high aspect ratio nanoparticles while also using their network organization to produce solids with distinct properties from those of monolithic structures. The work of the group is broadly divided into four research areas: i) synthesis and assembly of 1D nanomaterialsii) nanostructured electrodes for energyiii) mechanics of nanostructured networks and their composites, and iv) multifunctional materials.

Gas-to-nanotextile: Uncover high-performance materials from floating 1D nanoparticles in this new review from Juan J. Vilatela and co-workers in the @MNGMaterials group @ImdeaMaterials ! 👇

After a 3-year hiatus, we had our long-awaited scientific retreat yesterday, full of productive brainstorming and team-building sessions.

Special thanks to Prof. Ignacio Romero for hosting us at @La_UPM and for his enlightening talk on Bayesian models!
