Lucas Fonseca joined the UNIGOU Program in the first half of 2017 and below you can read about his research developed in the Czech Republic.

Project topic: Photoactive Nanoparticles Size Control

Project summary:

The aim of my research project is to obtain polymeric nanoparticles NP loaded with photosensitizers , such as porphirin with controlled particle size in the range of 10nm to 1micro m.We will evaluate the photochemical properties of those nanoparticles and how the size of the particles influence those properties. This NPs have potential application in biomedicine due antibacterial activity.
