BNTBT KNN - Codex international

The RoHS concept (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances) since 2006, requires that many electrical and electronic equipment must no longer contain a concentration by atomic weight of more than 0.1% of Pb, Me, Cr (hexavalent) etc., because of their danger to the environment.

Codex International, in partnership with the UPHF in Valenciennes, is developing a range of lead-free piezoelectric targets: BNT-BT, KNN, NBT, etc., with performances comparable or even superior to PZT targets.

The objective is to develop reliable process for manufacturing marketable ceramic targets of NBT, NBT-BT and KNN, with a relative density > 90%, with controlled stoichiometry and while avoiding the volatility of alkalis.

The concept is based on the interaction of resonant semiconductor iron oxide Fe2O3 nanoparticles with light. Particles previously loaded with the antitumor drug are injected in vivo and further accumulate at the tumor areas. In order to release the drug non-invasively, the carrier particles have to be light-sensitive. For this purpose, the polymer containers (capsules) can be modified with iron oxide resonant semiconductor nanoparticles. When irradiated with light, they get heated and induce drug release.
