Plenary III October 14, 11:30-12:00 Research areas: Name: Miguel García Rocha Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Ph. D Cinvestav Zacatenco Synthesis of nanoestructurd materials Optical and photoluminescence Email: Telephone: 55 57 47 38 00 ext. 6783 The Ph.D. Program on Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is focused to the development of multidisciplinary projects, through a collaborative work among researchers belonging to different Departments and Campuses at CINVESTAV, from different knowledge areas. Students in our Program develop their projects under the guidance of at least two researchers from different areas, receiving a wider academic formation, in comparison to traditional one-discipline Ph. D. programs. This coguidance is open to participation of researchers from other institutions, where cograduation is allowed. Due to the participation of researchers from different Departments, the Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Ph. D. program has an excellent infrastructure with state-of-theart laboratories where it is possible to develop basic and applied research. Several synthesis methods to obtain metallic, organic or inorganic nanostructured materials are part of our facilities. Characterization techniques facilities allow the study of structural, electrical, chemical and physical properties by means of Atomic Force Microscopy, High Resolution Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Time Resolved Spectroscopies and so on. Additionally, we have a theoretical group devoted to computational modeling of nanostructures and their properties. At the present time, some of our projects under developing include the study of nanomaterials for photovoltaic applications, biosensors, drug delivery nanoparticles, employment of nanoparticles for bio-remediation and fuel cells.

Plenary IV October 14, 12:00-12:30 Name: Florent Calvayrac, and Jean-Marc Greneche Institut Molécules et Matériaux de Mans IMMM - UMR CNRS 6283 Faculté des Sciences - Université du Maine Email: Telephone: (33) 02 43 83 26 26 (33) 02 43 83 26 27 Abstract The aim of the presentation rather focuses on studies on magnetic nanostructures including nanocrystalline alloys, nanostructured systems, nanoparticles and functionalized nanoparticles. Based on our instrumental 57Fe Mössbauer spectrometry facilities (including low and temperature 2-1000K and intense external magnetic field up to 9T) and on our expertise in the treatment of hyperfine structures, we could model the local structure around 57Fe probes at the nanoscale of these different confined architectures including the nature of surfaces and interfaces which play an important role. Several examples will be presented to illustrate the greatness of the non invasive and selective Mössbauer spectrometry to investigate structural, static and dynamic magnetic properties of Fe containing nanostructures. The second part will be rather concerned by numerous numeric approaches to model interfaces and surfaces in nanostructures and bonding of molecules in functionalized nanoparticles. In addition to a description of our numeric facilities, different examples are selected to show how Monte Carlo based and/or ab initio calculations can provide results which fairly compare experimental results.

Plenary VI October 15, 9:00:9:30 Name: Juan Pedro Luna Arias Research areas: 1) Transcription machinery of the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. 2) Molecular function of transglutaminases and glucanases of Candida albicans. 3) Identification of molecular markers for diagnosis of breast cancer Telephone: 57474016 Abstract 1) Transcription machinery of the protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. We are cloning and characterization of the genes encoding for the elements of the transcription factor TFIID. We are also purifying the TFIID by biochemical methods to identify novel transcription factors. We are focused on the TBP and TRF1 protein and identifying the genes that regulate by knocking down of them with ribozymes and Affymetrix chips hybridization. 2) Molecular function of transglutaminases and glucanases of Candida albicans. We are identifying and disrupting the genes encoding for the cell wall transglutaminases to determine their roles in the biology of C. albicans. We are also studying the importance of the four exoglucanase genes and two endoglucanase genes and their use as putative targets for designing new drugs. 3) Identification of molecular markers for diagnosis of breast cancer. We are labeling polypeptides from different breast cancer cell lines with isobaric tags for their identification by mass spectrometry. This approach will allow us to identify those proteins that are being up regulated or down regulated in breast cancer. These proteins could be used as potential diagnosis biomarkers. In addition we also want to identify these biomarkers using breast cancer tumor from Mexican women. In parallel, we are also working with physicists to develop new techniques to identify tumor cells using quantum dots (InP nanoparticles).

Plenary VII October 15, 9:30-10:00 Name: Gabriel Luna-Bárcenas Academic Coordinator and researcher of Materials Science – Cinvestav Querétaro Email: Telephone: +52 (442) 2119908 Abstract Deep eutectic solvents (DES) formed between acrylic acids and choline chloride exhibit certain properties of ionic liquids that make them suitable for free radical polymerization. The use of DES not only as a monomer but also as the solvent prevents the use of additional solvents (i.e. typically of organic nature) and offers a green tool for the synthesis of functional composites. We have recently explored this approach for the preparation of poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) and poly(methacrylic acid).[1] Herein, we have taken advantage of the outstanding capability of DESs as solvent to disperse –into a homogeneous fashion– substances such as carbon nanotubes (in this particular case, N doped MWCNT- CNxMWCNTs) in the polymerizable DES.[2] Interestingly, the resulting PAA/CNxMWCNT composites can undergo swelling depending on the pH because of the presence of the polyelectrolyte but the presence of CNxMWCNT allows the formation of a macroporous structure after submission to a freeze-drying process, the achievement of which was not possible in bare PAA. The combination of macroporous structure and stimuli response exhibited by these materials besides an eventually high biocompatibility –coming from the green character of the DES-assisted synthesis– should make the resulting macroporous PAA/CNxMWCNT composites excellent candidates for their future application as biomaterial or energy and environmental applications.

Plenary VIII October 15, 10:00-10:30 Name: Fabienne Poncin-Epaillard DR, Directeur de recherché CNRS Institut des Molécules et Matériaux du Mans (IMMM) Avenue O Messiaen F-72000 Le Mans Research areas: Plasma engineering for controlling surface properties of polymers. Email: Telephone: (33) 02 43 83 39 78 Abstract Plasma processes, eco-friendly technologies, allow the preparation of a large variety of polymeric surfaces or thin films with specific surface properties. Therefore, Polymères Colloïdes and Interfaces (IMMM-PCI) team has developed different strategies in order to create new functional polymeric surfaces in the frame of biomaterial, sensors or composites domains. Plasma modification, grafting or deposition are several studied possibilities for the elaboration of (super)hydrophobic or (super)hydrophilic surfaces, chemically or morphologically texturated of polymers and hybride composites. An overview of these plasma-syntheses will be given.

Plenary IX October 15, 11:00-11:30 Name: Guillermo Morales-Luna Researcher of Computer Science Department - Cinvestav Zacatenco Research areas: Computational logic and natural language processing Email: Telephone: 55 5747 3759 Abstract At present time there a huge quantity of information available through the Internet, related to juridic norms and technical specifications of communication protocols. The norm information follows strict formal rules to be put in natural language, however it falls still in the so called "unstructured information" in the context of Computer Science. Several methods in Computational Logic Deduction and in Computational Linguistics may be useful in order to automatize the recovering information procedures within these sources of "legal" information. We will sketch some steps in order to develop this strategy. Resume: Guillermo Morales-Luna received the BSc degree in mathematics from the Mexican National Polytechnic Institute in 1977, the MSc degree in mathematics from Mexican CINVESTAV-IPN, in 1978, and the PhD degree from the Mathematics Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences in 1984. Since 1985 he is a researcher at CINVESTAV-IPN. His research interest include cryptography, complexity theory, and mathematical logic. He is a Mexican national and he also holds Polish citizenship.
