Fabrication of nanostructures and their surface patterning with chemicals and bio-chemicals in the nanometer length has a fundamental importance in nanotech and nanobiotechnology.
Surface patterning group headed by Dr Tapas Sen is interested on the formation of patterned surfaces and their modification with chemical / biochemical functionalities for highly specific and targeted applications such as Bio-sensor, Food technology, Nanomedicine, Magnetic bio-separation, Green / Environmental chemistry and Industrial catalysis.

Recent news from the surface patterning group
Group leader (Dr Sen) has been invited to give a talk in NanoTR9 (June 2013) with professors from the top Universities worldwide such as Cambridge, Durham, Manchester, Harvard, MIT, Texax etc. http://www.nanotr9.org/?site=eng
Group leader (Dr Sen) has been invited to give a keynote speech (http://www.techconnectworld.com/Nanotech2013/bio.html) in connection with ongoing multinational project (http://uclannanobio.com/projects.php?s=212&id=22) on water technology in the biggest International Conference on Nano in Washington DC (May'13). It is an annual meeting where the top academics, industrialists, venture capitalists and government agencies (including the White House policy makers) from all over the world gathers and discuss about the current technology, science, investment etc. to shape the future of Nanotechnology. More information on the two presentations (WE5.215, WE6.607).

Multifunctional Nanocomposites for the Separation of Pollutants from Industrial and Municipal Sewage Water
This is a joint project (£108.3K) between UCLan Overseas Ltd., Fudan University, Shanghai, China and Feedwater Ltd. UK where Dr. Sen (UCLan) and Prof. Dongyuan Zhao (Asssocate Editor, J. Mater. Chem. RSC journal) are looking to develop (i) Core-shell magnetic nanoparticles and (ii) hierarchically ordered porous superparamagnetic nanocomposites containing antimicrobial silver nanoparticles for the removal of toxic chemicals and bio-chemicals from industry and Municipal Sewage.
Immobilisation of biomolecules on magnetisable solid supports for applications in bio-catalysis and bio-sensors
This is a joint project between UCLan and Q-bioanalytic Germany where Dr. Sen (UCLan) and Dr. Boris Oberheitmann (Q-Bioanalytic) are interested to develop superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) and their surface modification with biomolecules such as enzymes, oligonucleotides and nucleic acids for applications in bio-catalysis and detection of food borne microorganisms.
This project has started in January 2011 where we are developing the vanadium salen and porphyrin complexes inside the macro and mesopores of novel hierarchically ordered porous vanado-silicate nanocomposites. This project has recently been funded by UCLan summer internship scheme (2012).
Initiated by Dr Sen as a part of summer internship (2010) which has been extended as UG projects (2010-12). In this project we are looking for incorporation of vanadyl species in the mesopores of novel hierarchically ordered porous silica for the oxidation of bulky organic molecules under heterogeneous condition.
This is a project partially funded by UCLan through international scholarship programme where Dr Sen, Prof. Bond and Dr Mercer are looking to study the effect of microwave frequency and the high alternating current (AC) field on bio-catalysis using enzyme immobilised superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and drug delivery. A postgraduate student has already started in this project for a PhD programme from 10th October 2011.
Initiated by Dr Sen in collaboration with Dr Elhissi (School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences) and Dr Mercer (School of Computing Engineering and Physical Sciences) and funded by the UCLan internship scheme (2009 & 2010) where Dr Sen's group is looking to develop a novel biocompatible and superparamagnetic core-shell nanoparticles of size less than 100nm for in vitro loading and relasing study of anticancer drug for eventual applications in drug delivery in in vivo context. This project is running in parallel to a joint project between UCLan and the National Cell Bank, Pasteur Institute of Iran.
