Carbon Nanostructured Materials

In the framework of the hydrogen program , we have initiated an innovative new research line in materials chemistry. In collaboration with other research groups, we are investigating novel strategies for the synthesis of carbon composite materials using subcritical and supercritical fluids as reaction media.
