A scientific team for University of Kufa managed to prepare silver nano particles for the first time. This team headed by the Director o the Nanotechnology Unit “Dr Sabah Mourayiece and group of researchers and students. Such nano particles have good applications in medical and industrial fields.
In the meantime work is going on the preparation of gold nano particles which can be used in the treatment and detection cancer’s diseases. Other completed researches were carried on the preparation of nano particles of zinc oxides which can be used for pollution treatment and biological sensors.
Titanium oxide compounds also were prepared and used extensively in manufacturing of solar cells. The center managed to publish five scientific researches in nanotechnology area in international journals. These researches were carried out and investigated by Dr Sabah Mourayiece over period of less than one year.
These researches come in the framework of the university sought to keep up with research and development activities and to create scientific research climate and appetite in all faculties. Also to make links between all sectors especially in medical, industrial and productions fields.
