Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the II International School-Conference “Applied Nanotechnology & Nanotoxicology which will be held on August 15-19 at the most beautiful Russian nature reserve – Baikal Lake (Listvyanka, Irkutsk Region, Russia). Conference is organized by Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (Novosibirsk), Institute of Cytology and Genetics (Novosibirsk), Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok), Institute for Hydrocarbons Processing (Omsk) and The National Research Irkutsk State Technical University.

The Conference covers the following topics:

1.    Nanotechnology


  Synthesis of novel nanostructured materials

  Unique physicochemical features of nanostructures

  Characterization methods for nanoparticles

  Nanosize effects in catalysis

  Nanotechologies for green chemistry and clean energy


2.    Nanotoxicology


  Toxicology of nanoparticles

  Toxicity of purified and non-purified nanomaterials, oxidative stress and antioxidants

  Tissue specific response to nanoparticles

  Recognition and clearance of nanoparticles

  Individual resistance/susceptibility to nanocontamination

  Animal models in nanotoxicology
