Company Profile:
The QCI Centre is located in Barcelona and formed by two consolidated research groups of the Institute for Advanced Chemistry of Catalonia (IQAC), which belongs to the State Agency Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC).

The objectives of the QCI Centre are focussed to the development of technological innovation projects in the fields of colloidal chemistry and advanced materials.

Our research is focused into the following lines:
- Study of self-aggregation processes of surfactant molecules.
- Design of “tailor-made” formulations and novel technological applications, based on self-aggregation processes of surfactant molecules and colloidal surfactant systems (emulsions, nano-emulsions, microemulsions, vesicles, etc).
- Preparation of advanced materials from colloidal surfactant systems: nanoparticles, meso- and macroporous materials, hydrogels, etc.
Profiltitel

Colloidal chemistry and advanced materials

What we offer:
The QCI Centre is composed by qualified staff researchers and technical personnel, 30 members, with an important activity in applied research and technology transfer.

We offer technological services to companies of different industrial sectors (chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, detergents, textiles, nanomedicine, environment, etc.).

We have different PATENTED TECHNOLOGIES:
- Preparation of totally or partially metallic nanoparticles by reaction in oil-in-water microemulsions, which has environmental and economical advantages.
- Macroporous or meso/macroporous polymeric materials obtained in concentrated and highly concentrated emulsions.
- Textile compositions with chitosan hydrogels, increasing water adsorption capacity.
- Removal of trihalomethanes and emerging pollutants by plasma.

What we are looking for:
The type of contact sought includes both industry and academia.

These are some of the technological fields of interest: chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, detergents, textiles, polymers, nanomedicine, agrofood and environment.
