The application of hydrogen as an energy vector requires the development of new hydrogen storage systems. Magnesium borohydride Mg(BH4)2 is a promising hydrogen storage material because of its high hydrogen storage capacity (14,8wt% H2, 0.112 Kg/L). However, it is still limited by slow hydrogen release kinetics and by the harsh conditions required for reversible hydrogen […]

Medicinal herbs have received much attention world-wide for many years as natural drugs for therapeutic purposes. Their high content of phytochemicals such as antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory compounds drives their uses for disease treatment and prevention as well as in chemotherapy application. Conventionally, these plants have been boiled in water or blended with other ingredients […]
Nowadays it is necessary to look for new formulations of fungicides that allow us to reduce the use of toxic substances in an effort to preserve the environment, as well as to avoid the formation of resistant strains to traditional fungicides. With this purpose, new naturally produced substances are being formulated, such as resveratrol as […]
The prestigious Johan Gadolin Scholarship from the Abo Akademi University has been granted to one of our researchers (MEng. María Pinilla de Dios) of the High Pressure Processes Group to work on renewable polymers incorporating CO2. The Johan Gadolin Scholarship Programme has nominated Mss. Pinilla as a PhD student to join the Åbo Akademi Process […]
