Ceramics and Biomaterials

1. Introduction

Ceramics and Biomaterials Research Group (CBM) is a research group funded by Ton Duc Thang University. The research directions of CBM focus on new research in the various forms of nanoparticles, nanostructures, nanomaterials, new synthesis methods and processes, for example as chemical or physical methods, modified polyol methods, their related practical properties and applications for medicine and biology (nanomedicine), energy, environment, society, and life. The crucial issues of the size, the shape, the composition, the morphology, the structure, the related phenomena and properties of the prepared particles in the nano/microscale ranges are very important to their promising practical properties and applications for contributing to tackle urgent global-scale energy, environment issues. We aim to develop the new research directions of specific functional nanomaterials with the high potential of practical applications at Ton Duc Thang University, Vietnam.

2. Mission and vision

Our mission is to make the significant key contributions to the new, simple, and efficient synthesis methods and processes of the prepared nanomaterials with their high practical properties and applications for our society and life.
