8th July 2013 Ph.D Fillippo Pierini gave a lecture entitled:
Asbestos: from Health Hazard to Nanotechnology Applications
Asbestos is a set of silicate minerals belonging to the amphibole and serpentine family. The three most common types of asbestos are chrysotile, amosite and crocidolite. Chrysotile is the most abundant mineral in asbestos manufactured. It affects strongly the biological-mineral system interactions, which have been widely investigated in order to single out the causes of health hazard associated with asbestos fibers. Chrysotile is actually more known for its deleterious environmental effects than for its unusual structure and morphology. It is possible to obtain synthetic geomimetic chrysotile without any health hazard effects. The synthesis of geomimetic chrysotile nanotubes is entirely based on a hydrothermal reaction system. Synthetic chrysotile nanotubes have a high potentiality for nanotechnological applications. With the aim at preparing the first synthetic geoinspired inorganic nanowires, we have started to synthesize metal nanoparticles like Ag, Cu, Au, capped with thiol. Stoichiometric synthetic chrysotile nanotubes have been partially filled with previously synthesized bimetallic nanoparticles by capillarity effect at room temperature and pressure using a suitable organic solvent. Furthermore, the charged surfaces of the synthetic chrysotile nanotubes can be exploited for assembling chromophores. Indeed, preliminary experiments have shown the ability of such nano-objects to template the growth aggregates of the anionic tetrakis (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphyrin. Chrysotile nanotubes can be used to make nanocomposites. Particularly interesting are conductive polymer composites. Submicrometric fibers of conductive polymer blend (polyniline-polyethylene oxide) filled with stoichiometric synthetic chrysotile nanotubes can be obtained by electrospinning. The presence of nanotubes into the electrospun fibers improved electrical properties. The parallel distribution of the nanotubes produced rigid and straight fibers with efficient electric transport properties. Such hybrid materials are interesting for perspectives in technological fields.
