NMP-2008-2.6-3 Area: The comprehensive research of morphology, physical and chemical properties of composite nanostructure materials
The brief description of the project: Further investigation is aimed at solving a fundamental problem of quantum chemistry and material science of nanostructures connected with the research of structural and basic physical and chemical properties of composite nanomaterials, investigating mechanisms of interaction of inhomogenuous atomic structures, mechanisms of formation of quantum superstructures and the elaboration of unified classification of composite nanomaterials, called to systematise research of their physical and chemical properties. Nowadays many expectations in the development of technology in various areas are connected with the creation of composite structures on the nanotubulene basis. So, nanotubes are supposed to be used for incapsulation of radioactive waste, as tanks for storage of hydrogen, manufacturing elements for nano-sized electronic circuits. At the same time the range of objects considered as composites with nanostructure is rather approximate and includes rather inhomogenuous materials containing nanotubulenes as one of their components. It is necessary to note, that the detailed study of composite structures properties on the basis of nanostructure materials of various structure is only beginning.
Expected results: Further steps can be taken in the following directions: the construction of adsorption models for light atoms and simple gasphased molecules with carbon and non- carbon nanotube surfaces, polymeric nanofilms such as pyrolized polyacrilonitrile, fullerenes, and also research of possible ways of saturation of cavities in nanotubulene systems by various atoms and molecules. Research is directed at revealing common regularities of the specified interactions, which will allow to define properties possessed by the whole class of gasphased composite nanomaterials. Certain attention will be given to the study of mechanisms of formation of nanotube and nanopolymeric structures modified and intercalated by atoms of metals, as well as to the research of emission properties of the latter. Research in morphology and properties of nanomaterials, containing defects of a various sort (topological, rehybridised etc.) for revealing their common characteristics, physical and chemical properties, and probable spheres of application is planned. The essential attention will be given to probable boundary functions of carbon nanotubes and research of influence of the latter on processes of capillary filling of nanotubulenes by various atoms and molecules. The essential attention will be given to research of interaction carbon nanotube of a small diameter with inhibitors of protein synthesis called cycloheximide, which blocks the active centres of the brain which are responsible for development and preservation of memory in biological systems. One of most claimed directions of development of electronics is the research of an opportunity of creation of cold cathodes of electrovacuum microwave devices, mainly for space application. It is possible to assume opportunities of forming a film with nanotubes oriented perpendicularly to its surface in a firm matrix from Fe2O3.
