Project Details


We propose to create a novel nanostructure of Au-doped CuNPs (AuCuNPs) in colloids with a significant enhancement of the antiviral properties. Au-nanocluster theory will support the nanoparticles to target and defuse effectively to virus-cells for its inactivation to take place. The award is to support a true networking collaboration focussing on the development of healthcare-related antipathogenic low-dimensional materials as antiviral alternatives against Covid-19 spreading and transmissions.
