Abstract:
The professor of Physical Chemistry at the Universitat Jaume I (UJI) de Castellón, Spain, Juan M. Andrés Bort has participated in the discovery of a new material and in the article "Direct in situ observation of the electron-driven synthesis of Ag filaments on α-Ag2WO4 crystals» published by the prestigious journal Nature Scientific Reports in the April issue, which has become one of the most consulted so far. The article discusses the discovery of the formation of metallic silver on a nanoscale, a new material created by the interaction of the electrons generated by scanning electron microscopes and high transmission resolution with samples of silver tungstate crystals.

UJI professor Juan Andrés Bort participates in the discovery of a new material

Valencia, Spain | Posted on May 4th, 2013

The new material has photoluminescent and photodegrading properties and will be applied as bactericidal in ceramic materials or as photodegrading in chemicals that have proven to be harmful for water. The discovery was made in a line of research in collaboration with Brazilian researchers from the electrochemical and ceramics laboratories from the Universidade Estadual Paulista Júlio de Mezquita Filho (UNESP) and the Universidade Federal de São Carlos (UFSCar). UJI researcher's participation has consisted on the planning of the discovery, the analysis of outcomes and the proposal of a theoretical model, based on the foundations of quantum mechanics, which will be able to explain and support the new phenomenon.

Professor Andrés began his teaching and research career at the University of Valencia, where he became full-time lecturer in 1984. After that, he joined the Universitat Jaume I in Castelló, where he holds a professorship in the Area of ​​Physical Chemistry since 1994 and is the director of the Laboratory of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. He has been visiting professor at the University of Uppsala (Sweden), the Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris and the Universidade Federal de São Carlos in Sao Paulo (Brazil).
