The Ph.D. program in “Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology in chemistry” is designed to enlarge student’s knowledge in synthesis, characterization of nano-objects with the further search for their practical applications. The program typically lasts from 3 to 4 years, teaching students to be flexible and adaptable in their future research careers.

What is the main objective of the Ph.D. program in Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology? The main objective is to prepare researchers capable of designing, fabricating, and characterizing nanomaterials and nanostructured materials using modern and efficient tools and devices, which further may promote the progress in industrial production, making it affordable and sustainable to meet the growing needs of society.

The Educational program is meant for graduates in physics, chemistry, engineering, medicine, pharmaceutical technology, who aim at acquiring a high level of interdisciplinary preparation through specific courses and seminars, covering also fields different from their own specific areas. The program also allows carry out scientific projects in the framework of the collaborations with (inter)national scientific institutions and industries, which are established by highly qualified teachers and tutors of al-Farabi Kazakh National University. The program is closely linked to the latest innovations in this area. Courses are constantly updated in accordance with the progress of science and technology in this scientific field.

The program focuses on the following issues:

  • Synthesis and engineering of nanomaterials and nanostructured materials.
  • Development of new techniques for the investigation, manipulation, and visualization of nanomaterials at the nanoscale.
  • Study of the relation between structure and properties of materials.
  • Development of sensors for the detection of biomolecules or compounds at a very low concentration.
  • Application of nanotechnology and nanomaterials in energy storage.
  • Application of nanotechnology in the pharmaceutical and medical sectors.
    • Nanocomposites for 3D printing.
    • Photocatalysts.
    • Synthesis of nanomaterials in combustion mode (flames, SH-synthesis).
    • “Green” nanostructured materials (mostly derived from biomaterials).
