Self-assembly of hierarchical catalysts and adsorbent materials from Ordered Liquid Phases (OLPs)

Research project PX/8/LP/14 (Research action PX)

Persons :

Description :

This project will give insight into the molecular mechanisms of silica structuring to enable design and synthesis of tailor made materials. The proposal is based on the discovery zeolite formation involves self-organization within Ordered Liquid Phases (OLP's) of nanoscopic precursor species. Parameters affecting OLPs and the structure of the materials obtained from them will be studied. Shear and convection have strong effect on OLPs, which only can be studied under microgravity conditions.

Satellite(s) or flight opportunity(ies):

International Space Station

Field of research:

Physical Science: Fluid Dynamics and Surface Tension, Multi-Component Systems; Materials Designed from Fluids
