In recent years, the development of nanostructured ceramic materials and fine films has progressively increased, with coating applications in the automobile industry and even in the textile industry. This project will address fundamental aspects of the synthesis and processing of materials, as well as technological aspects such as optical, chemical and bactericidal properties. It is intended to synthesize by the polymeric precursor method Zr02, Ti02 and AI203 (ceramic materials) and deposit fine films by means of dip coating with anti-abrasive, bactericidal and aestivating properties. These coatings will be applied on metal surfaces, but specifically on steels. (AU)
