The purpose of this project is the synthesis, isolation and characterization of inorganic nanotubes and nanomaterials on the bases of TiO2 and some other compounds (TiS2, CuO) and the adaptation of the synthesis methods for large-scale production allowing the industrial use of these materials. Our preliminary investigations have shown that a new approach exists, which makes it in principle possible to produce large amounts of TiO2 nanotubes. This allows for various applications such as -Storage and controlled emission of different gasses such as NO2, ect. -the preparation of polymer composites with improved mechanical properties, which could perhaps replace structural materials used up till now in the appliance industry -The use of nanocoatings for antimicrobial action allowing production a new line of refrigerators, washing machines, and air conditioning equipment -The development of TiO2 based filters for waste and water purification -The storage and controlled emission of hydrogen as an alternative energy source -For semiconducting elements in nanoelectronics and regulation devices The special importance of this project is based on the fact that GORENJE d.d., one of the largest Slovenian enterprises, decided to enter the ecological market and plans to construct a special recycling center. The results of the proposed project should support this industrial activity.
