Thermodynamics and High Pressure Processes

Thermodynamics

From molecular structure to new materials to separation processes

  • Modelling phase equilibria (VLE, LLE, SLE, partitioning) based solely on molecular structure using predicitive methods (group contribution, quantum mechanics, MD)
  • Systems with surfactant, Ils, deep eutectic solvents, polymers, …
