Using science to make a positive difference

The detrimental impact that traditional energy production is having on our environment continues to increase. For Professor Thomas Nann, Head of School for the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, finding innovative ways to harness – and safely store – renewable energy underpins his ongoing research.

With more than 25 years working in physical chemistry and research, Professor Nann aims to find new solutions to the energy challenges our world is facing.

“As a researcher, I work across several different areas and disciplines. The common denominator of the majority of my research projects is nanomaterials.

“Nanomaterials are characterised by mesoscopic properties, that cannot be found in their macroscopic equivalents. For example, nanomaterials can be luminescent (glowing), magnetic, catalytic, or showing other physical properties, whereas their bulk counterparts don’t.

“I’m trying to study and exploit these properties in order to improve certain fields of application. One area of application that I’m very interested in is energy – in particular renewable energies.

“The biggest challenge as we transition to a renewable energy economy is to match energy supply and demand. Almost all renewable energy vectors are intermittent – for example, the sun only shines during day and the wind doesn’t always blow.

“In order to match energy supply and demand, storage options are desperately needed. I use nanomaterials to build new types of batteries and solar fuel conversion systems (photocatalysis) to respond to this market pull.

“Australia is in a unique position to have the potential to be one of the first countries in the world that can transition to a 100% renewable and sustainable economy due to the abundantly available renewable resources and relatively low population.

“My work aims to provide high performing and cost-efficient energy storage solutions. As a result, I’ve already submitted two patent applications in this area and am trying to commercialise these inventions,” said Professor Nann.

In addition to his work in the field of renewable energy, Professor Nann’s other major application field is nanomedicine – using nanomaterials as contrast agents for imaging (for example MRI), radiation detectors, and drug delivery systems.

“Early and accurate diagnostics can save lives. We develop more sensitive and selective contrast agents that allow for the detection of, for example cancer, at an earlier stage.

“Nanomaterials have the potential to improve medical diagnostics in an unprecedented way, because they can be made multifunctional,” said Professor Nann.

What excites Professor Nann the most about science and his work is the real and positive differences he can make to people’s everyday lives and supporting others to do the same.

“I’ve had the privilege of training many undergrad and HDR student, as well as mentoring Postdoctoral and early career scientists. I always enjoy working with these wonderful people and seeing how they too, can make a difference to the world,” said Professor Nann.

Career Summary

Biography

Thomas Nann is Professor and Head of School at the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Newcastle in Australia. He received his MSc (Chemistry) in 1994, and PhD (Physical Chemistry) in 1997, both from the Albert-Ludwig University Freiburg, Germany. He remained at this university for some more years where he was awarded his Habilitation (Nanosciences) and Venia Legendi in 2004. From Freiburg, Thomas first moved to the University of East Anglia in the UK, then to the University of South Australia in Adelaide. During this time he established a strong leadership and research track record in the areas of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology. In 2015, he accepted an appointment as Director of the MacDiarmid Institute for Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology in New Zealand, and finally returned to Australia in 2019 to take up his current position.

This article contains a critical review on the application of different types of nanoparticles in photodynamic therapy (PDT). Passive carrier particles like photosensitiser-"doped" silica nanoparticles are discussed as well as luminescent and noble metal nanocrystals in conjunction with molecular photosensitisers.

Luminescence color multiplexing is one of the most intriguing benefits, which might occur by using semiconductor Quantum Dots (QDs) as labels for biomolecules. It was found, that the luminescence of QDs can be quenched, and replaced by a luminescence peak at approximately 460 nm on hybridization with certain regions of Arabidopsis thaliana tissue. This effect is site selective, and it is unclear whether it occurs due to an energy transfer process, or due to quenching and scattering of the excitation light. The article describes methods for phase-transfer of differently coloured, hydrophobically ligated QDs, coupling of DNA strands to the QD's surface, and hybridization of the labelled DNA to different cell types of Arabidopsis thaliana. The reason for the luminescence blue-shift was studied systematically, and narrowed down to the above mentioned causes. © 2008 Riegler et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.

Luminescent semiconductor nanocrystals of CdTe and CdSe were derivatised by mercaptocarboxylic acids. A direct synthesis in the solution of the ligand and a post-synthesis ligand exchange method was used. The two methods were compared and evaluated by isotachophoresis. The electrophoretic mobility as well as the colloidal stability and the coverage with the ligand, were determined. An alternative method for the concentration estimation of nanocrystals by means of isotachophoresis was introduced. © World Scientific Publishing Company.

We extend the toolbox of lab procedures in life sciences by development of centrifugal microfluidics for high-level process integration. This is accomplished by implementing novel functional principles for sedimentation, batch-mode mixing, frequency-dependent online flow control, and optical read-out, which can be integrated into a process chain. The modular centrifugal setup comprises a microstructured disposable polymer disk as well as a reusable spinning and detection unit. We successfully developed centrifugal microfluidic technologies, which are suitable for sample preparation, process engineering, personalized diagnostics, and hematology, on this platform.

A microfluidic platform consisting of four-layer glass chip was designed and fabricated for the photometric detection of active (hypochlorous acid) and bound (chloramine) chlorine in swimming pools. The microfluidic chip enables separate interrogation of the chemical reactions of active and bound chlorine with the same organic dye, methyl orange. The downstream-addition of a catalyzing agent allows the quantification of both chlorine residuals to be distinguished kinetically. Potential inaccuracies due to variable pH were eliminated by using the isosbestic point of methyl orange.
