The agreement with the Groupe des Écoles Centrales (GEC), France, aims at implementing scientific and technological cooperation between researchers from GEC and from the State of São Paulo, Brazil, through the funding of joint research projects.
Nanoscale metal particles are currently being developed for use as advanced catalytic materials with new chemical and physical properties. As a bridge between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, nanoscale metal, especially platinum group metal, particles have received renewed attention in catalysis. Accordingly, an effective size control of the metal nanoparticles is important in ord…
This research project is strongly linked to the main theme of the Associated French-Brazilian International Research Laboratory (LIA): "Energy and Environment". In fact, the goal of this work is to analyze the safety and reliability of the long tubes, known as risers, that carry oil from the sea bottom to the surface. These tubes can be several kilometers long and are not easily inspected…
